The La Vernia boys cross country team took home first place at the Sept. 17 4/5A Islander Splash meet at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
About 200 boys were on the line when the race started, and, despite the fact that the 5k was changed to a 2k because of the heat index, the team finished strong.
Aubrey Stewart took first place, while Tate Gregory and Joshua Krueger took third and fourth, respectively. Bobby Gonzalez and Landon Collins took the 13th and 14th spots, and Ryel Leija placed 22nd.
La Vernia is headed to the McNeil Invitational Oct. 1 at Old Settlers’ Park in Round Rock.
Way to go, guys!
