Two Hondo XC runners advance to regionals
Bandera -- The District 29-AAAA cross country meet was held
Wednesday morning, Oct. 22. The Hondo Owl teams will not be advancing
to the Region IV meet, but two Hondo individual runners will.
On the boys’ side, Eddie Gutierrez placed 10th in the standings,
while Brittany Ontiveros placed sixth among the girls. They will both
compete in the regional meet, to be held on Saturday, Nov. 1, at the
National Shooting Center in San Antonio.
The top three teams and top 10 individuals, automatically qualify
for the regional meet.
Bandera, Boerne and Fredericksburg took the top three team spots in
girls’ competition, in that order. The same three schools, with
Boerne and Bandera swapping places, will advance on the boys’ side.
Both Hondo varsity squads finished in fifth place.
