HCN Sports schedule and results 

More than 100 LISD athletes earned a trip to their respective area track meets by qualifying in district meets held last week. 

Cedar Park, Rouse, Leander, Vandegrift, and Vista Ridge all had athletes set personal bests and advance at the District meet last week. The District 25-6A meet was held at Vandegrift while the District 19-5A meet was in Georgetown. 

The Cedar Park boys’ team won the district title with 151 points and the Rouse girls came in second overall with 140 points. Vandegrift was the highest finisher in both boys and girls in 6A, coming in second place in the team standings. 

“The second place in the varsity group was the best we’ve ever done,” Vandegrift boys track coach Scott Hermes said. “In a year that we moved up to 6A, to have that success is really phenomenal for the program. We took home a lot of medals and qualified 15 boys to the area meet.”

The top four finishers in each event at the district meet advance to the area meet. The top four finishers again move on to regionals from that meet. Only the top two places in each event from the regional meet advance to the state meet in Austin. 

Leander, Vista Ridge and Vandegrift area meet will take place Thursday at Rutledge Stadium in San Antonio. Cedar Park and Rouse head to East View High School for the area meet on Thursday. 

A few results stood out from the long list of district events. 

Emily Forster played in a state semifinal soccer game on Thursday and then ran in three races at the meet, finishing second in the 800 Meter and winning the individual district title in the 1600 and 3200 Meter races. 

The Vandegrift boys’ team won the 4X100 Meter Relay. Hermes said they set a school record in the race in the third meet of the season and have since gone on to break their own record three times this season.
