Cross country meets keep runners busy

Last week’s cross country meet at Joe Pool Lake’s Lynn Creek Park saw many of the area teams competing.

Lake Ridge finished ninth in the 32-team meet, while Summit was 12th, Timberview finished 22nd, and the Wolves were followed immediately by Legacy at 23rd.

Although the Broncos were the lowest placing team, Legacy’s Jake Weith finished second overall for the boys division. Timberview’s Matthew Garza finished 10th overall, while Matthew Gilliland from Lake Ridge was 15th and Asa Rice of Summit was 27th.

Many of the Mansfield ISD schools also ran at the Southwest Assemblies of God Lions Invitational the prior week.

Mansfield’s Malcolm Lewis won the individual title, while Timberview’s Garza was second overall. Mansfield’s Ryan Sterling was just behind Garza in third. Curtis Booth was seventh for the Tigers. Matthew Gilliland and Clayton Casner, Lake Ridge, were 10th and 11th respectively.

With such strong outings, Mansfield was able to capture the team title, while Summit was fourth and Lake Ridge fifth. Timberview finished eighth in the large field.

On the girls side was Lake Ridge’s Taylor Hayes in second. Other girls placing were Lauryn Doublet, Summit, fifth; Taylor Parker, Mansfield, sixth; and Diana Hernandez, Summit, 10th.

As teams, Summit’s Lady Jaguars finished fourth, Mansfield fifth and Timberview was eighth.

"Y Knot" Necktie drive benefits student athletes

The Mansfield ISD staff along with members of the community donated over 300 neckties for the “Y Knot” donation drive last week.

Hosted by the Coble Middle School PTA, over 300 ties were donated to benefit middle and high school student athletes across the district.

The ties were in need as the school district requires the middle and high school athletes to wear professional attire on game days.

Dr. Jim Vaszauskas, Superintendent of Schools, was on hand at Coble to offer a lesson in tying a necktie for many district athletes.
