Some time back, a high school coach whose identity I don’t recall posited a new endeavor for the Waco Tribune-Herald sports department:
ROUND ROCK – Nathan Vanderpool keeps on climbing.
More often than not, a high school planning to travel to the UIL State Cross Country Championships will require nothing more than a van. If you’ve qualified one or two runners for state, you’ve had a terrific season.
Several local athletes competed at the TAPPS state cross country meet on Monday at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course.
Waco High’s Anna Garner picked up her second gold medal of this cross country season, and it was a big one.
At a nearby soccer goal, a group of athletes booted a ball around in a pick-up game. As late-summer mornings go, the weather cooperated, as there was some humidity but no stifling heat with which to contend.
