At Old Settlers Park in Round Rock, Saturday, 107 of the best high school long distance runners from across the Lone Star State were off and running at the sound of the starter’s pistol signaling the start of the class 5A boys varsity cross country state championship race. Sixteen minutes, thirty-one and one tenth seconds later, Jose Jaime of Palmview High School crossed the finish line as the 39th best 5A runner in the state.
Having just completed his third year of running cross country for Palmview High School, Jaime has already attained a level of success that few high school athletes ever attain. Inspired by his sister and her coach, Jaime’s success began the very first year he ran cross country.
