St. Agnes Cross Country State meet in Waco, TX this past weekend to compete for the State title. Based on previous races, we were in a dead heat with rival, Dallas Ursuline. With torrential downpours and flooding in Waco and the surrounding areas, SAA competed on a completely ruined the course. Water was several inches to a foot deep in many spots but the mud was the real competition. Maryella Cohn led the Tigers as she has done all season finishing 9th overall and receiving All-State honors. Impossible to gain any footing, two of our runners fell and couldn’t regain lost ground. Emelia Bartusiak lost both shoes and Lauren Roth finished with just one. However, they got up and fought hard to push the rest of the team to a 2nd place finish. Coach Kristi Robbins says of her team, "They fought hard and gave it their all for the team and their school. I am so proud of them."
