amarillo.com / Wed, 22 Oct 2014 03:46:38 +0000
One word describes the running effort put in by the Randall girls and Canyon boys at the 2014 District 3-5A cross country meet Tuesday morning.
The current No. 1-ranked and defending state champion Randall Lady Raiders used a 1-2-4-7 finish scoring a measly 23 points — in cross country the lower the point total the better the score — easily claiming their third district title in a row.
Randall’s championship was highlighted by the individual effort of Erika DeWitt who won the gold medal covering the challenging 5K Thompson Park course at 19:00.05.
