 “As the guys prepared to run the 4x4, they realized we were not going to win the team title so they made up their minds that they were going to give it their all in the final race of the day by  making school  history with a 2nd place team finish” said Coach Lance Wigfall.

The next stop for the Jaguars on their history making journey will be the Hispanic Games on Saturday, January 10th at the New York Armory.  Competition gets underway at 9:00am.
