Cate Moore, Taylor Schick, and Riley Schick
Rummel Creek Elementary students participated in the 2022 USA Track and Field National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships in Bryan. Pictured (from left) are Cate Moore (fifth grade), Taylor Schick (fifth grade), and Riley Schick (third grade), who took eighth place overall at the meet. The girls placed in their 3k race in the 9-10 Division. Runners who qualified at the regional level traveled from all over the country to attend the meet. The National Cross Country Championships change locations each year. This year, the race venue was the Dale Watts Cross Country Course, located at Texas A&M. The girls trained with their FPR Speed team, which is a program run by Family Point Resources. Family Point Resources provides needs for children through education, sports, and arts programs. FPR Speed begins its cross-country training every August and transitions to track training in January.
