Peñasco takes individual medals in girls and boys State cross-country championships

Posted

Peñasco harriers went home with some hardware from the state championships Saturday (Nov. 10)

The A-2A Boys Race was the first of the day, and Gilbert "Gilly" Valdez of Peñasco proved that he can run with the best of them. With a time of 17 minutes and 30.1 seconds, Valdez, a freshman, ran the 3.1-mile race with an average pace of 5:38 per mile. 

Peñasco girls, the defending state champions, ran a strong race and narrowly missed the podium by only four points—the Panthers had 125 while Rehoboth Christian took third place with 121. Pecos and ATC each had a brilliant year, making themselves hard to beat with 36 and 39 team points respectively. Carly Gonzales took an individual tenth place finish and a medal to go with it with her time of 21:17.45.
