For a second-straight year, The Woodlands Christian Academy is the best.
On Monday, TWCA's boys and girls cross country teams traveled to Waco and did exactly what they accomplished a year ago - a pair of team cross country state titles.
The girls cross country team was led by Ellie Cantron's performance. Cantron was the individual top girl runner, finishing with a time of 12 minutes and 35.7 seconds.
Roughly a minute back was teammate Lindsey Worthington, who crossed the line at 13:30.8, finishing second overall.
The rest of TWCA's girls cross country team followed closely behind, all finishing in the Top 10 individually.
Emily Jasek finished fourth (13:44), Isabella Krantzcke took ninth (14:09.5) and Fern Shirley came in 10th (14:13.8).
The team averaged a time of 13:39.
The Top 10 finish by the entire TWCA team gave the group 22 points, good for first place overall as a team. TWCA beat the Geneva School of Boerne by a whopping 120 points for its third-straight team state championship.
This also marks the fourth TAPPS girls cross country title for the program in the past five years.
The winning didn't stop with the girls on Monday.
The TWCA boys, who were also TAPPS Class 4A defending state champions, held up their end on the title defense.
TWCA was led by Josh Mueck, who finished second overall with a time of 17:29.7. Along with Mueck, TWCA had three of the top five times posted - Josh Shearer came in third (17:43.6) and Ben Shearer followed in fourth (17:56.9).
Brett Odom came in sixth overall posting a time of 18:12.4 to round out the Top 10 finishers for TWCA.
The group's performance was able to earn them 37 points, which beat out Dallas Cristo Rey College by an impressive 40 points. This is the second-straight TAPPS Class 4A Cross Country State Championship for TWCA boys.
