Running at the State Championships, Isa Conde De Frankenberg places third with a time of 17:26.3 minutes. Conde De Frankenberg advanced to State as an individual, and the varsity boys team competed as well, placing seventh. “I was really excited to come here for a second year in a row, and it was a little disappointing that the girls team didn’t make it, but I just had to keep training hard and be prepared for State," Conde De Frankenberg said. "I was really excited, but also really nervous because there’s such amazing runners out here and it’s a really big competition. I definitely wanted a faster time or a better place, but overall, I’m just happy that I even got here and was able to place in the top three.”
This morning at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock, the fastest long distance runners in Texas kicked up mud and raced their limits for the State Championship. With hundreds of competitors, only the toughest pushed through strong to the finish line.
