One a day in which Alice went toe-to-toe with some of the Coastal Bend’s most talented track and field athletes at the Corpus Christi Metro Relays, it was the performance of an Alice High School senior that rose above everyone else at Cabaniss Field Saturday.

The Alice boys and girls teamed up to medal in 15 varsity events, however, Alice’s Criselda Cruz won the day by winning four individual gold medals. Cruz, a state qualifier a year ago in the 300-meter hurdles, won the 100 and 300-meter hurdles Saturday. She also won the triple jump and the high jump.

Cruz was responsible for the Alice girls’ only gold medals in the Corpus Christi meet.

The Alice boys won four events. Mark Salinas won the 110-meter hurdles and Orlando Espinoza won the long jump. Alice 400-meter relay team of Sean Molina, Sean Chapa, Jeremiah Gonzalez and Weston Moore, won gold as well as the 800-meter relay team of Jeremiah Gonzalez, Waylon Moore, Sean Chapa and Sean Molina.
