SUNRAY — Warm, pleasant weather set the stage for a district track meet in Sunray that resulted in multiple area qualifiers and several individual district championships for the Cats and Lady Cats. And, the JV boys won their division by almost doubling the points of second place West Texas High.
The JV boys racked up 249 points in the meet while WTHS placed second with 125. Stratford rounded out the top three with 103 points followed by Gruver, 27, and Booker, 22.
In the varsity boys division, Fabian Galaviz took first in the 800m run with a time of 2:12.18, and Julio Loya placed first in the 1600m run with a 5:01.01 as both Cats earned individual titles in those events. Daniel Hernandez took the district title in the long jump with his mark of 18-10.5.
The Lady Cats varsity team had three district champions — Karsen Anderson in the 100m hurdles, an event in which she ran a 17.2, and Lindsey Williams who placed first in the 800m run (2:37.19) and the pole vault (9-6).
While the varsity athletes listed above qualified for area by taking the championships in their respective events, the top four varsity boys and girls finishers advance to area.
