The Sealy cross country squad continued its winning ways, grabbing a pair of wins and missing a third by a mere two points at the Brazos Invitational Meet.
The Tiger JV Girls and Varsity Boys teams kept their scores low enough to come out on top, Boling edged out Sealy in the JV Boys’ race and Brazos took home the plaque for the Varsity Girls’ race.
Four Lady Tigers were the first runners across in the girls’ JV race with Coral Becerra, Madison Manak, Trinity Hall and Natalie Martinez leading the way to victory.
Hattie Schattie and Jenna Forester finished 9th and 10th respectively to round out that top-10 and secure a score of 16 for Sealy. The next closest team was El Campo who registered a 45.
In the highly competitive boys’ race of JV, Boling’s final score was 58 while Sealy came in with 60. The Bulldogs had the first and third finishers as well as three more in the top-25.
Logan and Cam Eschenburg finished within the first ten at 5th and 8th respectively and Cody Prause wasn’t far behind them in 12th. Dan Eschenburg, Ike Konvicka and Dakota Jones finished 17th-19th consecutively and Thomas Kovar came in at 21st but it just wasn’t enough to topple Boling.
The Brazos Cougarettes secured another victory in the varsity girls’ race with the Kneip sisters finishing first and third for the second consecutive weekend. Maddie was the first across the line and Makinzy wasn’t too far behind her.
Hot on her heels were Katherine Ressler (5th) and Allie Gonzales (7th) to register a score of 32 points which was enough to hold off 2nd-place Needville with 47 points.
In the boys’ varsity race, it was all Tigers again as Xavier Olvera was the top Sealy finisher in 2nd place overall.
Vladimir Hernandez and James Gassoitt finished 4 and 5 respectively and Nahol Ahmed registered a 15th-place finish to accrue 46 points when it was all said and done. Needville was the closest again, this time putting up a score of 70 to earn second-place honors.
The cross-country season rolls on with the Shiner Comanche meet this weekend starting at 8 a.m. in Green Dickson Park.
