    Los Fresnos boys, Weslaco High girls win at 32-5A meet

    The Weslaco Pantherettes are champions again.
    In a solid effort, the Weslaco girls’ track and field
    team dominated the 32-5A track and field meet
    on Tuesday and Thursday to recapture the league
    title and ending a five-year reign by the San
    Benito Lady Greyhounds.

    Weslaco took a sizeable lead after r the field
    events and continued their dominance on
    Thursday during the running finals to tally 180
    points and the crown.

    San Benito was second with 122 points and
    Brownsville Rivera was third with 116 points.
    Weslaco last won the District 32-5A title in 2005.
    It was the Pantherettes first ever girls district

    When head coach Pablo Almaguer took over, he
    wanted to establish the same tradition that he
    helped built on the boys side when he was a
    hurdler for the Panthers in the mid 1990s under
    the legendary Jimmy Platt.

    Almaguer’s teams have been within striking
    distance the past couple of seasons. But the Lady
    Greyhounds and coach Danny De La Rosa have
    built their own tradition too.
    This was Almaguer and the Pantherettes’ year,

    "The girls have been working hard trying to
    establish a tradition here too," Almaguer said.
    "All they had to do was believe in themselves that
    they were a good team. I knew we had a good
    team and now that hard work is paying off."
    Weslaco had been on somewhat of a roll in the
    last month.

    Starting with a big team win at the Meet of
    Champions last month then another team win at
    the Harlingen Relays, the Panthers culminated a
    nice late season run with the league title.
    "It was a good meet," Almaguer said. "San Benito
    and Rivera are good teams and very well–

    Briana De Leon was Weslaco Highs standout performer, on a night of many fine performances from the girls teams, as she earned multiple victories in the 100m and 200m sprints.

    The top three finishers in every event qualify for the Region IV-5A Tournament later this month in San Antonio.
