ARLINGTON - Oh how different things work out from Week 2 to the state finals.
In the first matchup, Sterling City erased a 14-point second half deficit and won a close game, 44-40, over May. In the rematch, a shootout looked to be brewing until Sterling City (15-0) put the clamps down to run away with a 68-22, mercy rule victory en route to its first-ever state championship.
The morning started out cold, wet, and eventually very windy, but that is not how the day ended! the 2A and 4A divisions were met with drizzle and brutal winds, while only a short time later, the 6A divisions got the blistering sun and a nearly 80 degree temperature. Neither are considered "perfect" conditions to run in, but that's what it takes to be the best- you have to be able to compete no matter what the circumstances are.
The UIL State Cross Country season came to end today, with 2A, 4A and 6A all competing one last time for the 2020 year. The results were exciting, and the competition was fierce. Vype Media was there to get all the great action!
