Six local athletes will advance to the regional track meet in San Antonio in multiple events, and the city schools produced a total of 29 winners at the area meet in Pharr last week.
Monique Rodriguez and Gustavo Vazquez of Econ made the cut in three events each while Lili Perez and Jeremy Nino of Vela, Brittany Cantu of Econ, and Tristan Pena of North were double qualifiers.
Gold medal winners at Pharr included Cantu in the shot put and discus, Natalie Martinez of EHS in the high jump, North’s Pena in the 1600, and Econ’s Kyle Marroquin in the 110-meter hurdles.
Regional action starts Friday at Alamo Stadium and continues the next day; the state meet is set for May 11-12 in Austin.
