Seymour Rogers cross country team travelled to Dodge City, and on a warm day to run. While they did not bring home any medals several athletes ran a new personal record.

The seventh grade Apache girls Yvanna Rivera had her new record at 8:32, coming in at 22nd place. Jessica Pando came in just three places behind at 25th place with a time of 9:02. With one more race to go Pando improved her time more than two minutes faster from her first race at Arkalon. 

Alea Diaz finsihed  in 30th place with a time of 10:35.

All three ladies claimed Dodge for their personal best record times.

Ruben Martinez led the seventh grade Apache boys in 20th place at a time of 6:36, beating his record from Garden City by one second. 

A minute later at 7:23 Cain Ortiz took 47th place beating teammate Marco Rivera who came in 20 seconds later at 7:43 and 56th place.

Sliding across the finish barely under 8 minutes was Benjamyn Brockett at 7:59 in 62nd place. Ayden Benya wrapped up his team in 68th place and a time of 8:47. Jose Escabar was missed today. Ruben, Cain, Benjamyn, and Ayden all set personal bests today.

As our only eighth grade Apache lady, Gennises Leyva continued to improve and finished stronger that ever by taking more than a minute off her time. She took 15th place with a time of 16:02.

Closing out the day were two eighth grade Apache men, Zahir Ortiz and Joshua Talley. Zahir came in 20th place with a time of 14:04. Joshua Talley set his personal best at 17:12.

“Congratulations to all Apache runners,” Apache coach Riggs said. “We can't wait to see how well they do Saturday in Hays for WAC.”
