Cross Country Season Review

On Tuesday, November 26th, The Cross Country Wolves competed in the annual State Meet. On Monday, the team traveled up to Natchitoches, Louisiana, and competed the following day. Top runners Domonic Meguria and Gage Graham lead the Wolves in scoring, with Domonic finishing a respectable 26th place. The team competed fiercely to the end, and once the final runners crossed the line, Saint Paul’s finished a respectable tenth place. This tenth place finish was the same result the team had last year.
The Jesuit Blue Jays were the stars of the meet as they placed more than half of their runners in the top ten results in a first place finish. Catholic High and Ruston finished at second and third respectively. This is an impressive performance for the wolves as the team is relatively young. Only two varsity runners will be leaving next year, while many other schools will lose more runners. Four of the top seven runners are either Freshmen or Sophomores who will have more time to develop further. Senior Marco Vargas is excited for the following years as he believes the team has a lot of potential. “We are a very young team with lots of room to grow. Obviously it’s going to take a lot to beat teams like Jesuit and Catholic, but if anyone can do it, it would be us. There are not many teams that are as young as us right now.” Senior Gage Graham agrees with Vargas, “We are right there. If just a couple of guys can take the next step, we can be right there with the best competing for a state championship. I’m excited for the future.” The next couple of years will be crucial for the Wolves as they look to get back to their 2016 championship team form, but this year was a good step in the right direction.
