(WESLACO) – All season long, the Donna High boys and girls relay teams have fared well in the Track and Field Meets that they have compete in.

So it was only fitting that the boys competed in the finals of the 4 x 100 Relay while the girls ran in the 4 x 200 Relay at the Rio Grande Valley Coaches Association Meet of Champions on Saturday.

The boys ran against some of the best relay teams in the Valley and ended up placing 16th overall with a time of 44.76 in the 4 x 100 while the girls came in 10th in the 4 x 200 with a time of 1:49.87.

A couple of individuals stood out for Donna High as Cosme Ibarra took second in the Boys 400-Meter Dash thanks to a posted time of 51.06.

On the girls’ side, Melanie Arenas placed in two events as she came in 11th in the 300-Meter Hurdles and took 10th place in the High Jump.
