The Waxahachie Lady Indians cross country team is two-for-two this year after winning the annual Robert Woodhouse Invitational on Saturday morning. All six runners also set new personal records, while the Indians made improvements across the board.

Emma Curry re-set a Lady Indian program record she broke during her freshman campaign last year with a 19:04.9 and a first-place finish in the 5A-6A 5K.

Curry currently holds the individual school records in the 1600M, 3200M and 5K (re-set Saturday), as well as the school record as a member of the distance medley relay.

Emily Mackel finished fourth with a time of 19:10.3 and Alyson Moore placed fifth with a 19:31.6. Cori Morgan (14th, 20:32.8), Cori Morgan (16th, 20:44.1) and Mariel Camargo (44th, 22:19.5) rounded out the Lady Indians times.

With 38 points, the Lady Indians easily defeated second-place Burleson (55) and third-place Rockwall (73). Mansfield High was the only other district opponent in the field and finished fourth with 100 points.

The Lady Indians averaged 19:48 per runner.

The varsity Indians improved on the first meet of the season in Cedar Hill with a ninth-place finish Saturday.

Newcomer Julius Luna set a new personal record in the 5K with a 6th-place time of 16:40.2.

The other Indians to compete in the Woodhouse Invitational included Sam Molina (36th, 18:01.6), Lucas Brandt (66th, 19:05.3), Eric Dyke (71st, 19:11.4), Andrew Galbraith (85th, 19:40.6), Chris Gasca (96th, 20:05.8), Jayce Glenn (106th, 20:44.4) and Ross Avent (113th, 23:12.4).

A total of 119 runners competed in the boys' 5A-6A race. The 316 points accumulated by the Indians were five points fewer than Life Waxahachie (321) but well behind first-place Mansfield (73). Other district opponent included Mansfield Summit (4th, 184) and Mansfield Lake Ridge (6th, 211).

The Indians averaged 18:31 per runner Saturday.
