Del Valle's Ivan Rodriguez passed four runners down the stretch to take third place at the 4A Cross Country State Championships this weekend, earning the Bronze medal. The Senior, in his third attempt at a medal at the state meet, was thrilled.
"It feels awesome knowing that you are the third best runner in 4A, and just keep working harder for track. Hopefully be the best. When you work hard, and have patience, it's going to pay off."
Ivan will now prepare for the upcoming Track and Field season for Del Valle.
