It was another gold medal day for Lady Tarpons Natalie Garza and the mile relay team at last week’s Meet of Champions in Raymondville.
Garza won gold in the 400-meter dash for the fifth time in five finals this season. Her time of 57.79 seconds was a season-best and she won by 0.71 seconds. The 4 x 400-meter relay team of Ava Gomez, Brisia Gonzalez, Simone Harry, and Natalie Garza (in that order) also improved to 5-for-5 with their winning time of 4:04.51 in that event.
“I was pretty excited but pretty nervous as well,” Garza told the Press at Monday’s practice, talking about the 400-meter dash.
