They were followed by Wylie East (71 points) and Sachse (79 points) as the other two district programs who qualified for the regional title on Oct. 24.

Hunter Jackson took home first place, while the Pirates had the top seven runners at the district meet. He was followed by Caden Biltz, Landin Wolfe, Mateo Guzman and Nathan Moore as the top five runners who accumulated points.

Wylie East finished as runners-up thanks to a strong showing from Kyler Guinn and Alessandro Garcia, who finished seventh and eighth. Keigan Trussell (17:39.2) ran in 11th and Benjamin Greer (18:27.3) in 17th as the other top 20 runners for the Raiders.

The Pirates girls’ team finished first overall with a total of 29, followed by Wylie East (48 points) and Sachse (62 points) again as the other regional qualifiers.

Liv Lambert finished first overall for the Pirates in the girls’ meet, followed by teammate Abigail Bray in second place.
