Hawks win at Hudson Relays

LA FERIA — By now, the Harlingen South boys track team and head coach Ralph De La Rosa probably feel like they can handle whatever is thrown at them.

The Hawks claimed their second straight meet title in as many weeks Friday night, after winning the Jim Hudson Relays in La Feria.

For De La Rosa, winning back-to-back meets is something he’s never done in his 12 years at South and attributes the feat to the balance of his team.

“It really depends on who we go against. Today, it was our field event guys who stepped up,” De La Rosa said. “They carried us into the running events this week. We weren’t as clean in our relays like we were last week, but the field events gave us that momentum.”

South’s Abel Villarreal and Jimmy Morton finished first and second in the discus throw with marks of 140-9.5 and 138-4, respectively. Alec Garza took home gold in the long jump (19-8.75) to lead the Hawks.
