The Port Isabel boys’ track and field team did rather well at last week’s District 32-4A meet at La Feria. Two Tarpons won gold medals and a total of eight Tarpons qualified for area competition.
Shawn Shrewsbury struck gold again in the 400 meters and the 4 x 100-meter team also captured gold in that event. The top four finishers in each event advance to the area track meet at Rockport High School later this month.
Shrewsbury was fourth in Thursday’s prelims in the 400 with a time of 52.58 seconds and improved to 51.68 in beating Raymondville’s Jacob Posas (51.86) to the line by 0.18 seconds.
