Academy to Zuni at 2019 championships

“The runners are on the mark; the gun is up, and the race is on.”

It was the call for runners of the 3A-Girls race at the Laguna Burger State Cross Country Championships.

Rio Rancho High School played host to the Laguna Burger State Cross Country championships Nov. 9. Sponsored by the New Mexico Activities Association, area New Mexico high schools came to compete for state titles. Students from Zuni, Rehoboth, Santa Fe Indian School, Farmington, Shiprock, Volcano Vista, Albuquerque High, Gallup, Ramah, Miyamura, Newcomb, to name a few.

Runners hit the 2.5-mile course which consisted of asphalt, cement, and dirt. The route took them along the backside of the school with numerous hills and scenic patches. Coaches and spectators lined the course cheering them on, and camaraderie could be felt from the first runner to the last. Time clocks were set up at the 1-mile and 2-mile markers to show participants where they were on the course.

Racing into the football stadium, runners could hear thunderous applause greeting them as they approached the finish line, and sped forward, hoping for a state title and record-breaking time.

The team and individual results of the 2019 state cross country district champions can be seen above.
