The Eastwood Troopers Boys Track and Field Team won the District 1-5A Title this weekend, behind a stellar push by both the girls and boys teams. 21 Troopers are headed to the regional meet May 2-3 in Lubbock, Texas. Eastwood was led by senior Juan Blanco, who won the 1600M, 3200M and was part of the winning 4 X 400M relay team.
Eastwood Head Coach Michael Mclain said of Blanco, "He's a guy that you have to watch to make sure he doesn't work too hard, not to push him too work, and he cares not just about himself but his teammates, his entire team." Juan Blanco added it's more about the team than his individual races. "For all my races, I came in hoping to get points for my team. I am looking forward to regionals, it's now and to take care of everything step by step."
