Comstock High School completed its district cross-country meet in Marathon this week.
The varsity girls, under the direction of coach Jaclyn Abbey, finished in third place, which would have advanced them to the regional meet in past years, but UIL has limited advancing teams this year at the Class 1A level to just two due to COVID-19.
Arleth and Emily advanced to regionals as top ten finishers.
The Comstock girls’ team consisted of Arleth (7th), Emily (10th), Yari (13th), Andrea (22nd), Isela (24th), Abby (25th), and Katie (30th).
In the junior varsity girls division, Rebecca was the district champion and Christina was seventh.
