Denton Record Chronicle Pilot Point v Krum Capsule
Labor Day weekend proved to be an exciting weekend for the Pilot Point Cross Country teams. The athletes competed at the Marcus Invitational at Denton early Saturday morning and was the only 3A team that ran in the elite division which received notice from the Texas Milesplit requesting team interviews. Texas Milesplit ranked this meet “as the best meet in the nation, hands down”. Needless to say, our teams ran with the best and did well. JV teams ran in the open varsity division and competed with the top notch runners as well.
Varsity boys continue to improve times this year and still have time to drop. We expect to see drops each week with the boys and a continued strong focus. Mileage will increase at practices as to assist in the time drop. Ethan Hite has been a steady runner for us and dropped dramatically from last year’s time at this meet. Ruben Calderon also had dramatic time drop and has shown excitement for the sport. Adam, Juan, Sergio, Jorge, and Alan showed they would not be intimidated by fast athletes and hard work. The boys know they must focus and stay the course in order to be state contenders in November.
Varsity girls also continued to improve on their times and are more focused than they’ve been all year. Sophomore Brisa Hernandez showed a big drop in time and caught the notice of many runners as she is 86th fastest runner in Texas. Jessica, Claire, Lindsay, Maddy, Leticia and Kassy Gann all showed great poise and strength at the meet and, as a team, caught the eye of coaches and competitors.
Pilot Point cross country has become a family. I have been blessed with talented athletes, hard working guys and girls, supportive team parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters. I am still amazed at the effort and hard work these athletes and their families put toward their sport, school, work, and church. Parents set up a table of snacks and drinks at the camp and make spirit bags (as did the cheerleaders this past week),shuttle their athletes from the meet to another sport or work and not to mention the shuttling to early practices each morning before school. It will be worth it! I can tell you that one of the most rewarding acts that happens to me most weekends is when my phone starts buzzing and it is many former Pilot Point runners asking how the team did at the meet. They miss the team camaraderie regardless if they run in college or not. They respect the current runners and when you run with the Bearcats from 7th grade through senior year...it becomes a part of you. For me, I ran for Pilot Point and blessed to now coach for Pilot Point. It's always a great day to be Bearcat!
Bearcats run at Southlake Carroll Invitational on Saturday, September 8th beginning at 7am.
