The NB3FIT XC team finished out its regular season at the New Mexico state finals meet on November 6, 2021 at Mesa Del Sol in Albuquerque, N.M. Unseasonably warm temperatures paved the way for a strong finish for the 2021 season.

This first season back for NB3FIT saw a mix of first time runners and some of our seasoned youth runners from year’s past.  All NB3FIT runners were all at their best at the state race with a few finishing in the top ten.

KC Winters finished 2nd overall in the 13-14 girls’ 4K division

Marcus Tenorio finished 10th overall in the 11-12 boys 3K division

Jacqueline Durand finished 9th in the 9-10 girls’ division

Desinayah Pacheco finished 10th in the 9-10 girls’ division
