On Thursday the 8th grade girls track team traveled to Devine to compete in the Devine Junior High Track meet. Although there was some heavy competition at the meet, it did not matter because the girls were still able to finish in first. These 8th grade Eagles girls cannot be stopped, you can only hope to contain them! Here are a few results from the meet:

While Mikayla was running her leg, a Devine athlete was hit with a phantom cross over and fell right in front of Mikayla. “And the lord said you’ve got to rise up,” Mikayla hurdled over that girl and gave the Eagles a commanding lead over everyone.

1600 M Run
Raylin Castillo went into this event with the eye of the tiger. She was determined to win this event back to back. In the beginning of the race she was behind 2 runners, but little by little she was closing the gap between her and her 2 prey. Then when the time was right, she made her move and finished up with the DUB!
