As a team, Pecos was decidedly middle-of-the-pack in Saturday’s big Fox-Vixen Relays meet in Fort Sumner. But there were several Panthers and Lady Panthers with plenty to celebrate.
“It was just a great day with individual (achievements),” said coach Leroy Barela. “A number of the kids had personal records.”
Pecos’ Cassandra C de Baca ran a personal-best 12:45.64 in the girls’ 3,200-meter run, qualifying for state, placing third overall and first among small-school entrants.
She also was fourth in the 1,600 (5:55.59).
