ALAMO – A PSJA Memorial Early College High School athlete recently earned 1st place at a Cross Country meet held Sept. 23 in Corpus Christi. Cruz Gomez, a junior, earned 1st place out of more than 350 runners in the competition.

According to the young athlete, he hopes to make this a great season.
