Runners have a favorite race that they try to make every year.

Runners also have preferences in the type of races that they like to enter. 

I used to like the smaller city or town races that were celebrating some special event: Dime Box Homecoming, Pflugerville’s Fiddler Frolic, Luling’s Watermelon Thump and Lockhart’s Kiwanis Rodeo are examples of some of the smaller venues that had a fun crowd of runners and the after race festivities were always fun to take part in.

The senior finally heard his name called as the Milwaukee Brewers selected Grist with their 38th round pick.

AUSTIN — On Wednesday night, senior Ellie Hernandez showed why she was one of the Lady Rattlers’ most reliable players during her four years playing for San Marcos

For one last time, head coach Cathy Stoughton joined forces with Hernandez as both represented San Marcos on the south team during the Greater Austin Area All Star Softball Game at Westlake High School.

The south eventually topped the north 12-6 and the scoring, fittingly, started with Hernandez.
