Brianna Miller, Reporter

The varsity girls’ cross team runs at the regional meet in Corpus Christi today.

“What went better than expected was that when we first started out I thought that I was going to not  be able to help the team get points,” Sophomore Leilany Alvarez said. “Sometime in the beginning of the season I got to help the team out.”

This Coach Kiff Weimers’ first year coaching cross country in Lampasas. 

“The determination and acceptance of the group is what I’m most proud of,” Weimers said. “It’s never easy for kids having to have a new coach and im proud of the determination.”

For freshmen Anna Burgess and Tate Brown, this is  their first time running for varsity. For Burgess it’s her first time running for cross country, and she was surprised she was running with upperclassmen.

“I’m sad the seasons coming to an end because im going to miss everyone and it went by really fast,” Burgess said.

For seniors Annabelle Brack and Cheyenne Foote, regionals is their final chance for state. Brack had set a goal for top 15 for every meet and has met it so far. She aims to keep placing top 15 until state.

“This is such a bittersweet moment for me,” Brack said. “Im happy to see what the next chapter in life has waiting for me but I’m going to miss this team and the memories ive made with them more than anything. They truly are my second family.”
