Carroll Cross Country Excels at District Meet

It was a great weekend for the Carroll Cross Country teams. Both the Carroll Varsity Teams advanced to Regionals, and the JV teams took top honors at UIL 6A – District 5 Championship meet.

The Dragon Varsity Boys Team took 1st place while the Varsity Girls placed 3rd in this tremendously competitive UIL 6A – District 5 Meet, earning the Varsity teams a spot in the Regional meet in Lubbock. The Boys had a low score of just 36 points, placing 9 points ahead of the next team. The Girls race couldn’t have been any closer with the top three teams coming within just one point of each another. Both JV Teams dominated the field taking 1st place and showing the depth of the Carroll team. The top 3 schools in the varsity boys and girls divisions advance to the Regional meet in Lubbock on October 23rd.

Southlake Carroll Head Coach Justin Leonard said, “We knew coming into the district meet that it was going to be extremely competitive. Our goal is to qualify for the next meet and run our best on November 4th. Survive and advance. I’m extremely proud of the way our kids stepped up and ran — onto the next one.”

The Varsity Dragon Boys dominated their race with 4 of the runners placing in the top 10 and the team scoring only 36 points. Junior Jack Myers led the boys’ team taking 4th place with a time of 15:49. Jackson Felkins took 5th place running a 15:53, Juan Arcila came in 7th with 15:59, Connor Rutledge came in 9th with a time of 16:04 and Vishnu Nair finished out the scoring positions in 11th place running 16:10. Enzo Mortimer and Drew Bliss also competed, taking the 12th and 16th places respectively.

The Varsity Lady Dragons finished strong with Senior Cate Tracht leading the team and placing 2nd overall with a time of 18:01. Next to cross the line was Sofia Santamaria in 12th running an 18:47, followed by Kate Reppeto in 14th at 19:04, Sarah McCabe in 15th at 19:09 and Cristina Canal finishing the scoring positions coming in 18th at 19:14. Lauren Esparza and Angie Riera also competed for the Lady Dragon team, finishing 19th and 20th respectively.

JV Dragons Reign Supreme

The JV Dragon boys ran an impressive race taking 1st place with a very low score of 21 points and had 8 runners finishing in the top 10 overall. The team was led by Sophomore Nate Lannen finishing in 1st place overall, followed by Noah Castro in 2nd, Everett Kolto in 5th, Lucas Levant in 6th and rounding out the scoring positions was Antonio Florcruz in 7th. Duncan Brown (8th), Chase Fisher (9th), Oliver Arandia (10th), Tim McElaney (14th) and Nick Arriaza (16th) completed the top 10 spots for the Dragons.

The JV Lady Dragons showed how deep their talent goes by nabbing the top seven finishing positions overall and with a perfect score of 15, sweeping the race. Leading for the Lady Dragons was Sophomore Rima Toure taking 1st, followed by Grace Williamson in 2nd, Lydia Lo in 3rd, Shreya Veeravelli in 4th, and rounding out the scoring positions was Abigail McIlvain in 5th place. Payton Wichman (6th), Rachel Nguyen (7th), Katherine McElaney (9th), Jenna Holland (12th) and Alexa Karmis (14th) completed the top 10 positions for the Lady Dragons.

Meet Christopher Fennell, artist for North Beach Street Corridor

Join Councilmembers Dennis Shingleton and Cary Moon in meeting Christopher Fennell and seeing his artwork proposal for the North Beach Corridor project at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 13 at Heritage Church of Christ, 4201 Heritage Trace Parkway.

Artist Christopher Fennell uses locally-recycled materials to build site-specific installations across the United States.

With an engineering degree from the University of South Florida, Fennell left his career in aerospace design to pursue his interest in art. After earning a master of fine arts degree from the University of Georgia, he discovered his love for using discarded objects to create sculpture. The artist places recognizable objects into organic forms, like a wave of 60 canoes, a ball of 600 baseball bats or a tornado of 120 bicycles.

Meet New and Longtime Merchants in the Local Business Report

Southlake’s business landscape continues to evolve, with new office buildings, retail centers and hotels appearing (or coming soon) along State Highway 114 and Southlake Boulevard. A look at the New Biz List, published each month by Southlake’s Economic Development and Tourism Department, also reveals recently opened businesses and upcoming commercial development in the city.

A tool the Department uses to help business owners introduce themselves to the community is the Local Business Report, a brief presentation scheduled during select City Council meetings. The presentations are made by business owners or their representatives, are posted to the Local Business Report blog and promoted via the City’s social media channels, as well as distributed via a RSS feed and sent to people who opt-in via the Notify Me system – click here to sign up. Steel City Pops, which opened March 11th in Park Village, was featured during the May 2nd City Council meeting; previous participants include Cinnaholic and Smashburger. Recently, the City changed the delivery format of the Local Business Report to a blog format so if you happened to miss the previous months Local Business Report, it can still be viewed. The opportunity to participate in the Local Business Report is open to any business located in Southlake.

Supporting new and existing businesses is a high priority for the Economic Development and Tourism Department. The Department also hosts the interactive Shopping & Dining Guide Story Map. This is an online tool that helps residents and visitors find all the great retailers and restaurants the City has to offer in a mobile-friendly map.

“Economic development is more than bringing new businesses into Southlake, but also helping them to succeed and grow – whether they’ve been here for a month or ten years. The Local Business Report is a great opportunity for business owners to engage with the City Council and the community to share information about their business,” said Deputy Director of Economic Development Daniel Cortez.

For more information about the Local Business Report, contact the Economic Development and Tourism Department at 817-748-8039.
