Seven Port Isabel Tarpons gave it their all at last weekend’s UIL Region IV Track and Field Meet at Kingsville.
These seven Port Isabel High runners competed in three different events in their efforts to qualify for the state meet in Austin later this month.
Shawn Shrewsbury ran the 400 meter dash at Javelina Stadium in Kingsville and was also part of the 4 x 100-meter and 4 x 400-meter relay teams.
In the prelims of the 400 meters Shrewsbury finished with the 12th quickest time of 52.18 seconds. The top eight finishers in the prelims of each event qualified for the finals in that event.
