Dragons repeat as State 6A Boys Champions

Girls finish second; Florcruz, Cox individual medalists 

Round Rock, TX – The Southlake Carroll boys cross country team successfully defended its 6A state title Tuesday afternoon, defeating two-time reigning 5A state champion El Paso Eastwood and 2019 6A runner-up The Woodlands at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock. It marks the 11th consecutive year the boys team has finished either first or second at the state meet.

The girls squad finished second, behind first-time champion Flower Mound. It is the 18th time in the past 20 years the Lady Dragons have finished on the medal stand.

“Our young men and women left it all out on the course today,” head coach Justin Leonard said. “We had a lot of seniors running their last race, and they gave it all they had. I’m thrilled our boys were able to defend our state championship, and even though it didn’t quite go our way on the girls side, I’m proud of how they competed. Congratulations to Flower Mound on a phenomenal season.”

In the boys race, senior Antonio Florcruz finished fifth overall, leading the Dragons with a time of 15:31. Senior Solomon Chavez finished 11th in 15:41, followed by fellow seniors Bennett Woolsey (32nd, 16:02), Bryan Fernando (42nd, 16:13.27) and Mason Alexander (43rd, 16:13.28). Sophomores Logan Cantu (52nd, 16:22) and Hunter Hill (74th, 16:39) rounded out the Dragon competitors. 

Junior Kaylie Cox was the top Dragon runner in the girls race, finishing 6th overall with a time of 18:00. Senior Abigail McIlvain finished 21st in 18:33, followed by senior Grace Williamson (24th, 18:42), senior Laurel Hook (33rd, 19:03) and sophomore Ava Bushaw (51st, 19:14). Junior Olivia Jones (54th, 19:19.18) and sophomore Audrey Dunn (56th, 19:19.87) were the Dragons’ final two finishers.
