VASQUEZ LEAD THE WAY - MAGNOLIA CROSS COUNTRY
Brekyn Vasquez a sixth grade student/athlete at Magnolia Intermediate School has done something which does not happen very often, if ever. Vasquez ran a time of 5:40 in Penn Valley on Tuesday while competing against the Pleasant Valley cross country team. Yes breaking the 6 minute mile mark is difficult to do for many runners but what was the most astounding achievement is that he earned a better time than all the 7th and 8th grade runners as well. Vasquez also has never lost a race in his grade group in three consecutive seasons of competitive running.
While Vasquez may lead the Magnolia 6th grade pack the team is very strong which is rounded out by Caleb Edwards, Sean Cullers and Jett Livingston who tend to finish in the top 10.
