To achieve your dreams, goals must be set and accomplished to obtain them.
Nothing could be truer for Mexia cross-country runner Macie Martinez, as she prepares this week to compete in her final fall meet at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock Saturday morning.
Martinez set goals at the beginning of the season to place high in each of this year’s meets. So far, she has met all of them.
However, this upcoming race (state meet) is more meaningful to her this time around, especially because it’s her senior year and what’s she’s endured during her high school career to get to this point.
