Eight Port Isabel Lady Tarpon athletes have qualified for area competition on the strength of their high finishes at last week’s District 32-4A Track and Field Meet at La Feria.
The team — led by gold medal winners Ava Gomez, Rebecca Ramos, Natalie Garza and Marlyn Cesenes — will compete in 10 different events at the area meet at Rockport High School on April 21.
Gomez won gold by running the 300-meter hurdles race with a time of 49.54 seconds. Ramos took first place in the high jump with a leap of 4-feet, 6-inches, and Cesenes got the best height in the pole vault when she cleared 9-feet even.
