Tina Sierra has sights set on winning 3200 gold

LA FERIA — The boys can’t have all the fun at this weekend’s UIL state track and field meet, and La Feria Lionettes’ distance runner Tina Sierra doesn’t intend to be left out.

Sierra is the only La Feria girls athlete heading to this weekend’s meet after winning the 3200-meter run with a time of 11:42.25.

“The season felt great and I feel like I tried a lot harder this year,” Sierra said. “Everyone else was focusing and it made me want to focus even more.”

This year, Sierra has been one of the top distance runners the Valley has to offer and is ranked No. 3 in the Valley’s Best mythical standings with a time of 11:07.10. Sierra set that time at the Meet of Champions in Weslaco.

Since then, Sierra hasn’t been able to match it, but is confident getting near that time will propel her to a good day at the state meet.
