Ridge Point will send its girls team and individual runner Gabriel Price to the Region III Championships on Nov. 3 at Atascocita High School. The school seeks its first Class 4A state meet qualification a week after the Lady Panthers finished second in District 22-4A.
The top three teams and top 10 individuals from the regional meet advance to the state meet Nov. 10 in Round Rock. The Lady Panthers finished second to 2011 state qualifier Stratford at the district meet, scoring 60 points to trail by only 13.
Standout freshman Taylor Price completed the five-kilometer course in 20 minutes, 41.98 to finish second overall. She finished 42 seconds ahead of third place.
Ridge Point was the only team with three runners in the top 10 as junior Lauren DeLuca (5th, 22:05.54) and sophomore Kevine Har (6th, 22:13.43) joined Price. Morgan Wallace, Alexis Brown and India Ware compose the rest of the regional team.
Junior Gabriel Price will represent the Panthers in Round Rock after placing sixth at the District 22-4A meet. He completed the five-kilometer course in 17:39.35.
The Panthers finished fourth as a team, one spot from regionals, led by Price and Trevor Fenner (15th, 18:42.04).
