Toombs County sophomore cross country runner Tristan Lynn is proving in race after race he is the man to beat in area competition. At Vidalia High School, on a three mile course that began on grass and ended on the track at Buck Cravey Field, Lynn held off a tough challenger from Wayne County and won the 12-team event running his best time of the season in 17:26. Lynn’s younger brother, Ricardo Santana, also beat a runner from Wayne County with an all out sprint to the line and ran his best time of the season at 18:19.

In the girls race Jennifer Zamorano, who finished first in a home race, was sick and didn’t race at Vidalia. So, JoAnn Gomez had to run by herself and she finished 22nd in 26:46. JoAnna Gaona was 37th in 29:43, Deyra Colemaneras 38th 29:52, Yareli Saucedo 41st in 30:29 and Jennifer Granjero 56th in 35:37. Marie Ann Escobar of Jeff Davis High School won the girls race, her second victory of the season.
