Cross country running may not be as popular a sport as football, baseball, basketball and volleyball are, but for those who compete in it it’s much more than a sport – it’s a way of life. So much so that while most high school students spend their summer vacations doing things like hanging out with their friends and going to the beach, cross country runners spend their summers running and training in preparation for their upcoming season.
That dedication and devotion to the sport paid off for many local runners at Saturday’s District 30-6A CC championship meet held at Palmview High School (PHS). None more-so than two Palmview High School runners, Natali Gonzalez and Eliseo Rodriguez, who bettered the girls’ and the boys’ fields respectively to claim both individual district championships for the Lobos.
