Covarrubias Corner

  • “One of the hardest things to combat in this sport is the weather and we faced some rare elements for this time of the year. In Abilene, it never got above 60 degrees and in Kingsville, Winston faced severe storms that prolonged the decathlon. However, even with the uncontrollable changes, we controlled our effort! I am extremely proud of Winston for surpassing the national mark by nearly 400 points and positioning himself firmly in the decathlon rankings. Shawntay had an impressive debut and has so much more that we are just beginning to tap into! Gabby, Alyssa and Moe did excellent, as they always do! I can go on and on about this team, but one thing that I firmly believe is that when we can finally get a warm meet to compete at, the lid is about to be blown off. We are on the verge of qualifying for nationals in so many events, and all we need to do is continue to put forth max effort, and everything will work itself out. This is just the tip of the iceberg for these young men and women!”

The Next Step

  • The Lions will compete in Abilene, TX at Abilene Christian University on Wednesday, April 21 st
