The varsity boys track team competed last week at the Texas Relays and two runners placed.

“The runners in the Texas Relays had to overcome some weather delays, and waiting around before their event,” Head Coach Ryan Dubelbeis said. “I was very proud of how they were able to adapt and overcome the conditions that were out of their control. Once on the track they did a great job of competing against the best in the state.”

The top results of the meet were junior Charlie Ruiz winning 48th in the 110 meter hurdles and the 4X200 meter relay team got 42nd.

We felt we ran a good race with good competition.”

“We want to get clean handoffs and maintain our speed on our legs,” junior 4X200 member Mati Abdul-khaliq said. “We felt we ran a good race with good competition.”

The next meet will be the Georgetown Relays on April 7 at East View.

“The way we prepare during practice is what helped us perform,” Coach Dubelbeis said. “They were able to go back to their routine and focus on the task as hand. This is something we preach in practice for each meet. Being able to adapt and overcome by going back to your routine.”
