Many more of our athletes gave very strong performances at this large meet but fell just short of the official top awards. Several personal records were bested, including some that are approaching new school records (and some that have already set new school records).....so stay tuned for updates to the record board!
 
Family support was high despite the long drive to Dallas, and parents in the stands report a predictable buzz when our athletes take the track ("Who are these kids? What is Savio? Where are they from?") Our athletes were repeatedly congratulated by other competitors with questions like "wow, what was your split?" and comments like, "I just love to watch you run." 
 
Folks from all over Texas are certainly learning that the name St. Dominic Savio is synonymous with graceful competition and athletic excellence.
