Devine -- For the fourth consecutive year, the District 29-AAA girls’ track and field championship trophy will be coming back to Hondo.

The Owls scored 158 points last Thursday, April 10 in Devine, earning points in all but two events, and winning six of the them, including two relays. Devine was 20 points back in second place, and Lytle was another 20 points back in third.

In the boys’ division, Lytle was the district champ, with 150 points, barely edging runner-up Devine, with 145 points. Hondo was third with 118. The Owls won only two events, but like the girls’ team, placed in 15 of 17 events.

Next up is the Area track meet, a combined meet for District 29-AAA and 30-AAA. Devine will host the meet, to be held Thursday, April 17, beginning at noon with the 3200-meter run and the first wave of field events. Running events will begin at 5:30 p.m.

With four entries from both districts competing at area, there will be eight total entries in all events, meaning that all events will be finals.

The Hondo girls’ team will be represented at area by 17 entries, while there are 10 boys’ entries at area.

Reagan Luce will compete in both hurdle events, the high jump, the long jump, and as anchor leg in the girls’ 4x400-meter relay, for her maximum five events.

Willie Keilman also accomplished that feat on the boys’ side, as he’ll advance in the long jump, triple jump, 100-meter dash, and as one fourth of both the 4x100-meter and 4x400-meter relay teams.

The Owls’ two wins in the varsity boys’ division came in the pole vault, where Carson Stoner cleared 12’6”, and in the 200-meter dash, where Marquis Martinez ran a 22.85.

Luce won the high jump by clearing 5’1”, and easily outdistanced the field in the 100-meter hurdles (15.55) and in the 300-meter hurdles (45.66). She won the 100 by a second-and-a-half, and took the 200 by more than two-and-a-half seconds.

The Hondo girls’ won two relays. The 4x100-meter event came in a winning time of 51.23, with Kyrsten Gibson, Elizabeth Simpson, Andrea Dominguez and Sonia Salazar running the four legs.

In the mile relay, the team of Dominguez, Gibson, Salazar and Luce teams to run a 4:09.68.

Hondo also got a first place finish in the girls’ pole vault, with Emily Reed clearing 9’6”.
