"Most teams just have one big back on offense but they had two guys who were big and could run the ball." Leh- man's Charles Williams said. "We really couldn't do any- thing to stop them."

Alamo Heights has such a talented program. Just having them in our district makes us compete a lot harder." Lehman seniors Royce Mc- Rebel X-Country Continued from pc. 1B Gabriel finished the three- mile course in 17 minutes, 17 seconds. "Johnathan ran a very smart race," Buckley said.

Riojas finished with 12 solo tackles including a bone- crushing hit that sent Can- yon quarterback Cameron Longmire to the sidelines for a couple of series. "They had a very good run- ning game and the way they kept bringing in new guys every series, it was hard for us to stop them," Riojas said. "Just tried to do what I could do to help my team win." Elliott praised the play of Riojas despite his team's siz- able winning margin. "That kid was all over the field tonight," Elliott said. "We did everything we could do to block him but he always Cabe and Mark Fernandez were also big contributors in the Alamo Heights match. A trio of freshmen, Olivia Marzullo, Derrick Robert- son and Zane Zezulka, also competed strong for Lehman against the stubborn Mules. DeLaFuente believes that his team's district record be- lies how competitive they have been during the fall campaign. 'Alot of those matches could have went either way," said "I was glad to see my kids wanted to run hard this week," Buckley said. "This is a huge morale booster coming into the last month of training be- fore district." The Lady Rebels were forced to run without last year's indi- viduai district champion Lena New, who was out with an in- jury. The Hays girls finished sev- enth overall at Temple. Mariana Sigala was the top i seemed to be around the football. He's a helluva foot- ball player." Levi Medley led Lehman th 73 yards rushing before exiting early in the second quarter with an injury. Medley appeared to be hurt after a five-yard carry that put the Lobos in position to score heir second touchdown late in the half at the Canyon 22.

I think the girls you very many opportuni- ties," Davis said. "That's been our Achilles heel the past few games." Things won't get any easier for the Lobos as Lehman (3-3, 0-2) travels to Smithson Val- ley on Friday. Smithson Valley beat Can- yon 35-14 two weeks ago. "That just shows how tough our district is," said Davis. "We go from playing a great team like Canyon to having to play one of the best teams in the state in Smithson Val- ley at their place.

Lehman has a couple of concerns going into Friday night's contest with HB Medley and FB Porche both nursing shoulder injuries. If the Lobos can sustain long drives and keep the ball away from Smithson Valley, they will keep it relatively close. Other- wise, it will be a festive home- coming for the Rangers.
