MHS SOCCER: The Mexico Lady Bulldogs soccer team traveled to Boonville Thursday night and were shutout by the Lady Pirates 3-0.
"It has been a bit of a run of tough results here lately, but the attitude last night was better and we feel like there is still time to turn the corner," remarked MHS Coach Brad Ellebracht.
Mexico's record is 5-11 on the season. The junior varsity team also lost 1-0.
MMS TRACK: The Columbia Relays on Tuesday was a good way for the Mexico Middle School to end its track season.
The boys finished third as a team and everyone on both the girls and boys side competed well and continued to have several season bests. Some highlights included a 2-3 finish by Gabe Deimeke and Terrese Aaron in the discus, season best second place from Bryan Roth in the 100M, a season best boys 4X400 (AJ Tracy, Marcus Moore, Cameron Baumgartner and Kellen Ekern) for third in a highly competitve race, season bests by all of the players in the long and triple jump and a season best by the girls 4X400 (Amber Shaw, Elizabeth Finck, Rebecca Rothermich and Nyja Mitchell) by 12 seconds and they ended up placing fourth coming out of the slower seeded heat.
"Track can be a very tough sport and training was particularly hard with the weather this season. I am proud of all of the kids that finished the season," remarked MMS Coach Cindy Allison.
