Community R-VI’s Blaze Escamilla had a large crew of fan support cheering him on this past Saturday at the Class 1 State Championships for cross country in Jefferson City.
Escamilla finished the race in 68th place out of 165 runners with a time of 18:55.59.
One week earlier, Community R-VI head coach Caitlyn Cunningham gave Escamilla a shout out on Twitter.
“For the first time ever, @CR6Trojans will have an athlete advance to the state cross country meet!,” she said. “Way to make history Blaze!”
