Panther wins individual championship at district cross country
Allen Gonzalez is advancing into Regionals after being the first Cy Springs back-to-back two-time district individual champion.
“I put a lot of effort into the sport with which I have a lot of emotion when I do good or bad,” said Gonzalez.
Junior varsity cross country athlete Pablo Martinez placed first in District at the JV level. Due to Martinez being on JV, he couldn’t advance into Regionals, however he is still just as motivated as before.
“I can push myself to be better, faster, and more efficient,” said Martinez. “I can use the same work ethic and confidence to get over anything that life throws my way.”
Next up for Gonzalez is the Regional meet in Dallas.
"Getting to win and getting all of those medals is a good feeling," said Gonzalez. "Getting other schools from around the district to get to know you more and seeing them have a little fear when they see me on the starting line encourages me even more."
