Freshman advances to Regionals
WACO – Freshman Amber Boyd continued her streak of medaling in each of her races for the Lady Dawgs Wednesday during the District 8-5A race at the HOT Soccer Complex in Waco. Boyd ran a time of 19:03.01, good enough for fifth place, for the three mile course through the trees, hills and flats of the complex. “I slowed a bit in the front of the course, knowing that my strongest part of the race was at the end,” said Boyd. “This year has been great, I have learned that I can push through anything. The competition was different from junior high running. I have had to adjust to not finishing as high as I was used to.” The Belton Tigers placed two inside the top five with Temple placing third and Killeen senior Brittany Mitchell posting the best time of 17:47.49.
