Congratulations to the Ursuline Academy cross country team for capturing the TAPPS 5A state championship Saturday in Waco. The Bears edged three-time defending champion San Antonio Antonian after three second-place finishes. Seven Ursuline runners competed: Shannon Burton, Caroline Cochran, Catherine Cochran, Kennedi Henneberger, Niki Lehtola, Marie Meyer, and Lauren Younger. Younger, Lehtola, and Henneberger finished fourth, sixth, and 10th, respectively.
Meanwhile, Cambridge’s Joel Truelson won the 2A boys race. He follows in the footsteps of brother Dane, who won the 3,200 and 1,600 last spring at the TAPPS 2A track meet.
