The Saenz Elementary School Superstars Running Team has chalked up some miles, and its young runners have competed in several events this school year.


The Superstars Running Team is coached by coaches Robert Snyder and Kim Kubala, and its main sponsor is ACE Recertification & Services, LLC.


The team is having 13 runners compete in the St. Elizabeth School 5K Run in March and 16 runners compete in the Ben and Friends 5K. Six runners ran in the Sal’s Journey of Hope 5k. They were sponsored by Cross Fit and Mark Dominguez. Seven runners competed in the Colton Rusk Memorial 5K. Saenz Elementary PTA sponsored the team in that event.
