The Fruitvale Bobcats sent six runners, one boy and five girls, to race against some of the best 1A schools in the state at this year’s 1A Region III Championship at Lynn Creek Park in Grand Prairie Oct. 23.

Fruitvale’s varsity girls team placed 20th overall at the event with 547 points. Individual varsity girls results for the Lady Cats included: Abby Williams, 104th place, 16:56.91; Delaney Chennault, 144th place, 21:09.99; Mackenzie Cavazos, 145th place, 21:10.95; Krysta Nix, 148th place, 21:58.24; and Alexis Brown, 149th place, 22:05.34.

Gavin Sulc, the lone Fruitvale Bobcat runner in the varsity boys division, finished 81st overall with a time of 21:44.34.

Posting on the Fruitvale ISD Facebook page following the meet, Coach Jennifer Sulc stated, "We traveled to Lynn Creek Park in Grand Prairie yesterday (Oct. 23) for our Regional XC Meet. They were all nervous when we arrived, looking around at all the 100 plus kids that they would be up against. I told them that all I ask is that they give me 100 percent out there and that's just what they did. Although we will not be going to State, I could't be more proud of them. I had a great season with a great group of athletes!"
