Cross-Country Report

On our way to Farmersville Friday night we passed by a “4-sell” pickup, with a “window” price of 10K.

We offered the owner $6,200, U.S.dollars, but he turned us down.

Perhaps only Evan McQuirk will get that, but here we go.

Evan, who was Texas’s Class 2A runner of the week after his performance at the Jesuit meet, led a pack of more than 180 varsity boys across the finish line of the Melissa Cardinal XC Invitational on Oct. 12 with a time of 16:10 over the 5K course.

In the final tune-up before next week’s district meets a jam-packed field came to Country Ridge Park to compete on a very uncomfortable day for distance running.

Molly McQuirk finished eighth in a field of 146 ladies who took on the challenging two-mile course.

Teams from both Van Alstyne and Howe competed in the event.

Howe will travel to Pottsboro on Oct. 21 to compete in the District 11-2A meet, while Van Alstyne goes to Celina on Oct. 23 for the 12-2A event.

The top three teams and top 10 individual finishers from both districts will advance to the regional meet, which, to be held on Nov. 2 at Lynn Creek Park in Grand Prairie.
