Buzz Run answers some questions for Elks’ Enis
Running at Cleburne’s Buzz Run Friday morning, Burleson cross country coach Curtis Enis found a possible answer for the boys varsity team.
“We may have found a possible fourth or fifth man in freshman Alex Adame,” Enis said. “He ran in the junior varsity boys race. It was his first race of the season. I hope we can bring him along by district time.”
The Elks finished sixth at the meet after scoring 324 points. Waxahachie was first with 117 points, Belton finished second (133 points) and Waxahachie Life was third (134).
The Lady Elks were sixth with 196 points. Centennial took the title with 30 points. Belton placed second (77 points) and Euless Trinity was third (128 points).
Burleson’s boys were led by sophomores Chris Smith and Elias Word. Smith finished 10th in a time of 16 minutes, 20.45 seconds and Word placed 25th in a time of 16:50.93. A pair of seniors – CJ Kinsey and Zane Rice – were the next runners to cross. Kinsey finished 51st in a time of 17:25.38 and Rice was 104th in a time of 18:19.47. Sophomore Adrian Rice placed 147th in a time of 20:27.25.

Enis had nine runners in the girls varsity race led by sophomore Meadow Renfro, who finished 10th in a time of 19:30.09. Sophomore Bridgette Montes placed 30th in a time of 20:53.73. Freshman Emily Tebo was 39th in a time of 21:10.25. Sophomore Kassedi Zapata placed 50th in a time of 21:41.44.
