Posted on 12/08/2017

McCollum High School senior Thais Barron completed the San Antonio Rock and Roll Half Marathon of 13.1 miles in one hour and 57 minutes on Dec. 3.

With only two weeks of training, the Cross Country and Track runner was able to manage enough long runs to prepare for this last minute race.

“Thais becomes the very first runner from McCollum High School to complete such a run,” McCollum Head Cross Country/Assistant Track Coach John Rivera said. “Thais has the fastest time of the 5K (3.1 miles) in Cross Country at McCollum with a 20:47 and a new personal record in the half marathon of 1:57 has set the standards high for future McCollum athletes.”

Other accomplishments include Track and Field Area Qualifier in the Pole Vault with a height of 8 ft. Her goal this year is to vault 10 ft.

Congratulations, Thais! Go Cowboys!
