It was nearly a sweep for Rio Rancho High School on Saturday morning at the Albuquerque Metro Cross-Country Championships.
The Rams collected both team trophies, and sophomore Devin Paredes won a thrilling individual race, joining La Cueva’s Natasha Bernal as meet champions at Albuquerque Academy.
BOYS: The gap between Paredes and Academy’s Jordan Lesansee at the finish line? The general consensus was no more than six inches. It was that close. Like photo-finish close.
The margin was 23 hundredths of a second.
