SAN ANTONIO — The Faith Academy girls track-and-field team continued its dominance of District 3-2A by winning another team title April 18. The boys were second.The Lady Flames earned 152 points, 49 more points than runner-up Austin Hill Country Christian.

“This was our eighth district championship in a row and ninth out of the last 10,” Faith head coach Steve McCannon said. “(It was) a solid team win with 15 different girls scoring points for us. I am really proud of this team for taking care of business and getting qualified in almost every event slot we need for region. The district has really grown over the years with 15 schools now competing.”

The Flames scored 94 points, while Boerne Geneva earned 103 points for the district championship.

The scoring came down to quantity vs. quality, Faith head coach Russ Roberts said. Faith has fewer but more quality athletes than other teams, he said. The bigger teams stacked their athletes in each event, outscoring the Flames. Faith has a total of nine boys on the squad.

“This is the second year in a row we scored more points per athlete than any other school,” Roberts said. “But we can’t win (the district championship) because we can’t get enough athletes.”

Athletes are limited to a total of five events, and the events can’t all be running or field events, Roberts said.
