Still stinging from last year's disappointing fourth-place team finish, Gatesville High erased those lingering memories by claiming championship honors at the District 17-4A meet held here Monday. The Hornets totaled 59 points to edge runner-up China Spring by two points in the seven-team field. Robinson (with 81 points) claimed the third regional spot and was followed by Hillsboro (82), Lorena (85), Connally (122) and La Vega (169) in the final standings. The Hornets' strength came in numbers, as GHS had five runners finish among the field's Top 15 places. Baylee Ivy led the way, clocking a time of 17:36 over the 5K course for eighth place overall. Close behind were teammates Riley McClure 9th (17:56), Miles Barnes 13th (18:38), Horacio Briseno 14th (18:40) and Aaron James 15th (18:42). Other results: Mason Edwards 25th (19:46), Jorge Gamez 32nd (20:17). Gatesville, which has now won three meet titles this season, will compete in the 4A-Region III meet October 23 in Huntsville. The top three teams and top 10 finishers will garner state-meet passes. You can check out all meet results at the below link.
