LUBBOCK - Coahoma ISD Coach John-Michael Leggett was all smiles after his varsity cross country team’s performance at the Lubbock ISD Invitational Regional Preview at Mae Simmons Park Saturday.
According to Leggett, eight out of 10 Coahoma runners had personal best times of the season.
“It was a huge day for Bulldog Cross Country,” Leggett said. “We ran against the best teams in the region and held our own. The guys and girls showed what BFND (Bulldogs Fight Never Die) truly means.
“In my eight years of coaching Cross Country and track, there are only a few days that I have been prouder to coach a team than I was this past weekend,” Leggett continued. “These kids are working their butts off every morning and the results are starting to show.”
The varsity team will take this weekend off to recuperate and prepare for the upcoming district meet to be held in Colorado City, Leggett said.
“If the community hasn't taken notice of the Cross Country programs on campus it is time too, because these kids are primed to make history by qualifying for the regional meet as a team for the first time in school history,” he added.
Individual results are as follows:
Christian Klug, 19:57
Hector Rivera, 20:48
Tanner Atkins, 20:49
CJ King, 21:32
Ethan Biddison, 22:13
D'Kota Harrison, 22:54
