It took us a while to receive the final results, but this homecoming weekend we competed in Casa Grande in one of the premiere races of the year!
Over 117 schools competed. In our large school varsity race, the DE boys finished a commendable 16th place out of almost 50 teams. We crushed Verrado, Millennium and Agua Fria in the team scores, indicating we are poised to retain our District Trophy this year!
Senior Joel Mendez finished first for the boys with a time of 17:10 in the 5k.
Freshman Erika Delgado led the way for the girls with a time of 24:11 followed closely by sophomore, Amy Whitler.
Please congratulate all our runners because nearly everyone ran their fastest times of the year, so far!
Oh yeah, I finished 4th place overall in the coach’s race with a time of 16:00. If only I could throw on a Desert Edge Jersey and help out the team?
