This past Saturday was the San Saba Cross Country Meet at Mill Pond Park. Twelve teams were entered, but Hurricane Ike apparently caused three to drop out, so nine schools attended the meet. As it turned out, the cool temperatures and lack of wind made it a perfect day for runners. All visitors were very complimentary of the meet which just shows how great the helpers are in San Saba. Team totals were as follows:
First place winners were: 7th Grade Girls-Candace Saldivar-San Saba; 8th Grade Girls-Cassidy Murray-Brady
JH Boys-Austin Odem-Rochelle; JV Girls-Shay Glen-Early;
Varsity Girls-Sidney-Evant; Varsity Boys-Dilion Shaner-Cisco
Medal winners for San Saba: 1. Candace Saldivar; 3. Danessa Vasquez, Diego Gonzales; 4. Alexa Maxcey, Pedro Prado
5. Taylor Duffy, Candace McKinney; 9. Jose Vega; 10. Buddy Bush; 12. Joely Haverland
