SSHS Cross Country Team Place At UT-Tyler Meet Saturday

New Wildcats and Lady Cats Cross Country Coach Ross Hicks said his teams had good days overall at a cross country meet at UT-Tyler last Saturday. The Wildcats finished fourth and the Lady Cats ninth among 27 teams. There were about 150 runners each in boys and girls competitions.

The Wildcats finished ahead of district foes Hallsville, Pine Tree and Mt. Pleasant. The Lady Cats finished third pitted against their three district rivals.

The Wildcats were paced by Peyton Vickery who placed twelfth. Teammate Landon Thornton was right behind Vickery and finished in thirteenth place. Top five Wildcats finishers included Eli Sellers, Andrew Escobar and Ed Ramirez.

Lauren Helm was the top Lady Cat finishing ending up in around thirtieth place. Coach Hicks said he entered ten girls in the varsity race so they could run a complete 5K. JV girls runners only do a shorter 2-mile run. Coach Hicks said he surprised his team with an intense workout Monday morning, just two days after the race.

The Wildcats and Lady Cats run next in a Hallsville meet Friday. More district foes are expected to participate there.
