Doublet running to state
Summit’s Lauren Doublet qualified for the state cross country meet last week, finishing seventh overall at the Region II meet. Doublet broke the school record in the process, running an 18:37. The Summit girls finished seventh overall as a team, with other Lady Jaguars Diana Hernandez (19:42), YaYa Mendoza (20:01) and Alexus Jackson (20:07) completing the top four for Summit. “The top four ran incredible,” said Summit coach Shannon Utley.
The Summit boys finished ninth overall. Matt Anderson ran a personal best 16:19, just nipping teammate Asa Rice at the finish. Rice had won the district meet with a 16:34 time.
“It’s not what we were hoping for,” Utley said, as the Jaguars had swept the district meet a week ago.
Never miss a local story.
Timberview’s Matt Garza ran a personal best 16:40 and finished 37th.
In 6A, Mansfield’s girls team finished 11th at their regional. That was the best team finish for the Lady Tigers since 2011.
The Tigers were 21st in the Region I meet, one of the toughest in the state.
“We ran well for a young team,” said Mansfield head coach Danny Calderon. Much of the team will return for next season.

Broncos golfers spooked in the Hill Country
The Legacy golf team was set to compete in the “Halloween in the Hill Country” tournament but it was canceled on Friday. They played at Ramrock in Horseshoe Bay on Saturday and shot 338 and placed eighth. Trevor Mellott led Legacy, shooting 80.
The Broncos, who won the tournament last year, are playing without any seniors in the top five for the first time in school history, said head coach Chris Word.
“We’re rebuilding for sure this year,” Word said. “We’ve got a long way to go.” He said the team would be taking advantage of the Southern Oaks renovations in their practice areas to enhance their chipping and putting greens to work their way back to championship form.
Meanwhile, the Lady Broncos finished second for the fourth straight tournament at Hidden Creek in Frisco.

The Summit girls golf team finished second in the Max Spencer Invitational with a total score of 359. Turning in scores for Summit were Maddi Farrow, 88; Paige Savage, 91; Annemarie Schonhardt, 93 and Camryn Justice, 94.
