Russell & Lady Panthers Advance to Regionals

by Ryan Peterson

For the first time since 1996, the Lufkin girls cross country team is headed to regional's.  The Lady Panthers finished third as a team at the District 15-5A Championship.  Ruby Rosales was the top Lady Panther finishing 16th overall.

On the boys side, the Pack failed to qualify as a team.  Lufkin finished fifth overall.  Only the top three teams advance.  But the Panthers did have one runner qualify for regional's.  Senior Hunter Russell took 7th place in one of the toughest district's in the state.  Russell had the good finish despite some butterflies.

"Let's just say that yesterday my teeth were chattering, I was so nervous," Russell said.  "And that was yesterday.  This morning it was twice as bad."
