Cross country practice still started at the same time and same place this week at Robertson and West Las Vegas. Head coaches Fabian Trujillo and Leroy “Caro” Armijo were still on hand to issue instructions.

But there were only three runners at each campus — junior Kaitlin Hutchinson, eighth-grader Karlene Montaño and freshman Brian Maestas at RHS and junior Amanda Ortzow and sophomores Jordan Lopez and Adrian Gallegos at WLV.

These six will represent the Meadow City on Saturday morning in Rio Rancho, site of the state championship meet. Each qualified for state with strong showings in this past Saturday’s District 2-3A meet held at Pojoaque High. Check the Optic next week for state coverage.
