Cross Country Lions, Lady Lions run on little sleep


Ozona—After the emotional and fun week of homecoming, the Ozona Cross Country Lions and Lady Lions chose the hardest path, running their division at a regional preview in the earliest division.

The teams could have run this race or a 3A, which would have provided the runners with an extra hour of sleep. However, sometimes the hardest path is the best path. Sometimes the hardest path is the most uncomfortable, but when you realize that you can do it, you realize you are capable of far more than you give yourself credit for. 

This race allowed the runners a preview of regionals should they advance. The district is stacked with 3-4 teams that should be at the top of the region and the state.

The boys had one medalist, Moses Ramirez, and the girls had one, Cameran Ochoa.

The boys on average improved by 1:45 over last year's times, and they were unsatisfied with how they did. They’ve improved but they’re hungry.

The girls did exactly as expected considering how young they are. Experience shined through and helped Cameran finish in the top 25, and Ysa Esparza finished in the top 50 of 150 runners. 

The girls team finished 9th and the boys team 10th.
