The cross country team competed at the University Interscholastic League (UIL) 5k state championship on Nov. 3.

Out of 152 runners, senior Myles Richter placed fifth with a 15:04 run and senior Aaliya Fazel placed 19th out of 160 runners with a 17:56 run.

“My usual race plan is to start toward the back and work my way up which I did very well,” Fazel said. “I knew it was going to be fast so I was definitely hoping to PR (beat a personal record) – my previous PR was 18:03 and I ended up running a 17:56 – and I was hoping for top ten placement, but I didn’t make it.”

Fazel’s and Richter’s performance in the 5k placed them among the top five fastest Hebron runners ever.

“It [has] definitely always been one of my goals since my freshman year,” Fazel said. “I’ve been surrounded by elite runners, so I always wanted to be performing up there with them. Getting up there meant a lot to me.”

The team is now preparing for its post-championship season runs, like the Nike South Regional on Nov. 17 and Foot Locker South Regional on Nov. 24
