Led by senior Diana Moreno, the Katy girls punched their ticket for the Regional Cross Country meet next Saturday in Humble with a second place finish Friday at the District 19-5A meet held at Bear Creek Park. Katy finished in second place overall behind Seven Lakes while Houston Memorial claimed the third team spot at the regional meet.
“We are kind of training through this meet because we had a pretty good idea that we were going to be able to get through this one,” Darcey said. “We still have some pretty big races coming up. We didn’t make this our Super Bowl. The girls did good and made a run at a pretty good Seven Lakes team, who is a favorite to medal at the state meet. Our girls made a good run at them and made it closer than everybody thought it was going to be.
