Rocksprings Represents at Regionals- State Bound
Four athletes participated in the 1A Region 4 Cross Country Meet on Monday, September 28th in Corpus Christi, Texas. Mia Franco (freshman), Paige Elliott (junior), Christian Montoya (junior) and Chris Flores (junior) competed on Saturday for a spot in the state cross country meet. Out of 148 competitors in the girls division, Mia Franco placed seventh and Paige Elliott placed eighth. Out of 142 competitors in the boys division, Chris Flores earned the top spot as regional champion and Christian Montoya placed thirty-ninth.
Mia Franco, RISD freshman, has had a difficult season as she faced new challenges in her breathing and greater competition with high school competitors. She has worked day in and day out to focus on the intricate details that will impact her performance. At regionals on Monday, she crossed the finish and immediately broke into a dimple to dimple smile, which is something we have not seen from her as she finished completely exhausted and gasping for breath at the end of many meets this season. No matter the course or the competition, this athlete pushes herself. We look forward to her debut in state competition.
