After winning a pair of District 15-5A track championships, the Cy Creek Cougars and Lady Cougars have their sights set on the Region II-5A meet on May 3-4 at Baylor Stadium in Waco.
Cy Creek's Lady Cougars scored 176 points to win the District 15-5A meet by 54 points over Cy Woods (122) and 66 over Cy-Fair (113).
Cy Creek has an excellent team,'' said Cy Woods track coach Mike Zacos. They should have several girls who have a chance to do well at regionals.''
Cy Creek's 4x100 relay team of Krystal Brown, Danielle Demas, Daina Harper and Zoe Wright might have the best chance to make it to the Class 5A state meet on May 15 in Austin.
The top two individuals and top two relay teams at regionals will advance to state.
The Lady Cougars' 4x400 relay team of Monique Curry, Harper, Leslie Schilsky and Kelley Roach also could be in the mix at regionals after running 3:56.08 to win the district title.
Cy Creek's other top hopes should come from Schilsky in the 300-meter hurdles (43.29) and 800 meters (2:17.76), Harper in the 400 meters (56.25) and Wright in the long jump (17-9).
Cy Woods' top hopes should come from Marisa Guercio, who won the district pole vault with a leap of 11-0, and Alexis Hebert, who went 37-10 to win the district triple jump title and 12.52 to win the 100 meters.
Cy-Fair's best shot to make the state meet might come from the quartet of Sydney Wandix, Shawnda Smith, Nicole Denby and Lakesha Cameron in the 4x200 relay. The quartet ran 1:44.62 to win the gold medal at district.
Cy-Fair's Katie Boane won the district 1,600 (5:17.24) and 3,200 (11:27.02), but probably will have to go much faster at regionals to be in the mix.
The Cy Creek boys' track team scored 165 points to easily outdistance Cy Woods (107) in the race for the district title. Cy Springs was third with 95.5 points.
Cy Creek's top hopes at regionals should come from Brian Helaire in the 400 meters (48.81), Richard Renteria in the 1,600 (4:23.87) and 3,200 (9:36.55) and Archie Muniz in the discus (163-7) and shot put (51-4).
Cy Woods' No. 1 hope will come from Craig Nowak in the 1,600 meters. He ran 4:23.83 to win the event at district.
If he can put everything together, he has a shot (to get to state),'' Zacos said. He has run 4:21 in the mile.''
Cy Falls' Trey Jerrols and Cy Woods' Isaiah Battle could have quite a battle in the Region II-5A long jump competition.
Jerrols won the district title with a leap of 23 feet, 7 inches, while Battle was second at 22-9.
