On Saturday, the band hosted their “Band on the Run” 5K run. A great time was had by all as the weather cooperated and 62 runners completed the 3.1 mile course. Several current and past LHS students earned medals by finishing in the top 3 of their respective age groups, including Edson Hernandez, Joshua Gamboa, Michael Bradshaw, Loreana Vazquez, Rachel Tamayo, Cesar Gonzales, and Jake Ivie. Several LHS faculty members also finished in the top 3 of their age groups, including Coach Howard, Miss Burwell, Mr. Fender and Coach Wilson. And the overall winner was LHS Senior Jethro Stokes, who established a course record with his finish time of 17 minutes, 40.7 seconds. The band wants to give a huge “thank you” to all the sponsors, participants and volunteers who helped make the event a success.
We also had 4 Lytle Junior High students (Ariel Muraira, Monique Covarrubias, Paul Tomlinson and Zachary Rodriguez) and one Lytle Elementary student (Michael Tomlinson) who placed in their age groups, and Lytle JH faculty member Mrs. Breit who placed in her age group. Sorry I left out all of those with the first email.
