The Northwest Vista College Distance Team had an awesome showing at the Northside Education Foundation 5K held at Sea World on May 8.
The ladies had a fantastic race day, with every member placing in the top 3 in their age group. The first runner in for the ladies was Karla Presa. She was the 2nd overall female & the first in the 15-19 age category. She ran a personal best of 19:26 for the 5K. In the 20-24 age category, the Wildcats swept the field. Placing first in the age division was Vienna Garcia, second place was Lauraly Wade and third was Esther Lucio.
The boys also ran really well. Adam Soto was the first male for the team. He came in 1st in the 20-24 age group, and right on his shoulder was Javier Ramirez, placing 2nd. Robert Dreamkowski was 4th in this age division and not far behind was Gilbert Rodriguez placing 8th. Aaron Beattie had an excellent run and was just one place out of placing 4th in the 15-19 age category. This was a tough category with the top two winning the overall male race.
The team has one more race, held at Texas A&M San Antonio, at the end of the month before they break for the summer.
