This district is a little hard to evaluate. Clint was the only team to compete as a team at the Chamizal race, so based off the numbers they sweep. Instead I will still show the top three runners, but this time I will just break down each team minus the team score.
1. Sarah Rayas, Clint, 13:21.
2. Heather Delgado, Clint, 13:29.
3. Cashlee Rayas, Clint, 13:50.
Clint's X-Factor: Cashlee Rayas. The former All-City MVP has had a rough season battling injuries. However she has looked strong as of late, which means she may be ready for another November push. Remember these Lions were the preseason No. 1 for a reason and that is they are going for the gold at district, regionals and state. Look out for a perfect 15 tomorrow.
Fabens X-Factor: A fifth runner. This is a solid program that only had four runners at the Chamizal race. They will have a final scorer and the Wildcats more than likely will be headed to regionals. At the same time, the team has to move as a pack behind leader Mirka Flores.
Mountain View's X-Factor: A team. The Lobos are jumping down from District 2-4A last year where, they placed sixth. Same as Fabens. Mountain View will have a team, which could be the ticket to the regional meet.
•Presidio will have a five girl team which will be fighting for that third regional spot. Pecos will also have two runners in the mix.
1. Eddie Amaya, Mountain View, 17:29.
2. Oscar Melendez, Mountain View, 17:43.
3. Javier Contreras, Clint, 17:47.
Clint's X-Factor: Jose Guillen, third runner. There was a drop off from No. 2 to No. 3 last time. Guillen will be a focal point if the Lions are going to capture their third consecutive title. However, Mountain View looks to be coming strong, which means Clint will have to hold together.
Mountain View's X-Factor: David Najera. Eddie Amaya and Oscar Melendez look like they will be at the very front. From there the team will have to come through. Najera ran well at the Chamizalm,but if he can run better the Lobos may be in the mix with Clint for the district title.
Fabens X-Factor: Robert Morales. Experience is the key here. Morales is a state qualifier and wants to get back. Don't be surprised if he leads his team to a regional spot or if he even wins the district title individually. Either way this is where Morales has stepped up in the past.
•Pecos will field a team, making it four teams for three spots.
