According to a press release from the Rio Grande City CISD reports, on October Friday, October 28, and Saturday, October 29, the Grulla Gators traveled to Texas A&M Corpus Christi University where the Islanders were hosting the Regional Cross Country Meet.
Jesus Rodriguez competed with over 150 runners from throughout South Texas and was able to finish in 12th place, qualifying him to the State Cross Country Meet to be held on November 12, in Austin, Texas.
“I’m so proud of his effort, dedication and commitment, not only to the sport but to his accomplishments. If standing tall against the pack is the only option…run with it,” Coach Angel Ortiz said.
Ortiz thanks Jesus’ parents who also traveled to Corpus Christi to support the Gators. Also participating in the Regional Meet were: Chelsey Castillo, Cristina Vela, Marlynn Pompa Gutierrez, Valerie Gutierrez, Kaylyn De La Rosa, Samantha Salinas and Gilbert Rodriguez.
