9-12-2022 Pirates Prevail! Pirate Cross Country at Bandera Meet

On September 10, 2022, the Pirates claimed 3 of the 4 High School Division Titles, 3 of the 4 Individual Titles, 22 of 24 runners finished in the Top 20 and received medals. 16 of those finished in the Top 10. To say we had a momentous day is an understatement. This is probably the best team finish in an Invitational we have had in the 20 years now that I have been the Head Coach. In 4 Meets, the Varsity Boys won 3 and didn't have enough at the first Meet. The Varsity girls have won 2 and been runners-up twice. This is the best start to any season we have ever had and we hope that we can continue it. Our season has gotten a little tougher these last 3 weeks as we get ready for the Championship season. In 2 weeks, the girls get a chance to compete against the #1, 3, 7, and 8 teams in the State of 3A and the boys get a shot at the #3 and 8.
