The Eagle Pass Eagles Cross Country teams of both varsity Boys and Girls amassed incredibly low scores as teams to come away with two championships in this division on Saturday at the South Texas Stampede in Zapata.

The girls came away with a championship outlasting a Zapata Hawks cross country squad by sixty points en route to the title scoring 19 points.

Texas ran into one of the baseball's emerging young pitchers on Tuesday, and the Rangers had no answers.

James Paxton pitched into the seventh in a bounce-back start to lower his career ERA to 1.71 and the Seattle Mariners topped the Texas Rangers 5-0.

"I feel like I'm getting closer with each start," said Paxton, who missed almost four months with a strained back muscle. "I feel like my stuff is starting to come around."

Eagle Pass High School Cross Country Coach Juan Gonzalez informed The News Gram of the fact that his charges will be attending the Gonzalez Apache Cross Country Relay which is an interesting concept where three-man teams run two X-Country miles each to determine a winner.

As you can see from the picture, EP High has an enormous team of dedicated young runners who religiously attack their training regimen on a daily basis as they could be seen trickling in last Tuesday.
