Sacred Heart girls take seven straight state title

The Muenster Sacred Heart girls cross country team took home the first place trophy in the recent Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) cross county state meet held in Waco.

It was the seventh consecutive state title for the Tigerettes.

Not to be outdone, the Tigers’ boys team took fourth in their division.

According to Athletic Director Jon LeBrassuer, cross county Coach John Bartush is to be commended for another great season. “He had the girls and boys well prepared for the championship run,” LeBrassuer said.

LeBrassuer said Frisco was winning the overall championship until the home stretch when the Tigerettes were able to pass enough runners to put out the championship run.

“The Tigers were a surprise in their division,” LeBrassuer said. “The team of four freshmen and a sophomore came out of nowhere. The fourth place finish is the highest in years for the Tigers. The future looks bright for the youthful runners.”
