Boerne, ranked fifth in the state, placed third with 93 points out of
the 10 teams and a total of 100 runners competing.
The Lady Lions” effort was its finest of the young season, according to Coach Lee Datesman.
Junior Livi Massey placed 6th (12:34) and is continuing to get stronger by the week. She was followed by a quartet of solid performances from sophomore Aly Gonzales (20th in 13:05), junior Aly Daily (29th in 13:12), and freshmen Jordyn Platt (33rd in 13:18) and Alex Maderal (36th in 13:21).
