The Portage Boys Cross Country team has continued their winning streak and placed first in their regional meet last Saturday. Top finishers for the team include seniors Antonio Chapa in second, and Dillon Quinones in third.

Chapa claimed his second place finish with a time of 15:57, and Quinones secured his third place finish with a time of 16:10.

Also finishing strong for the team were freshman Kyle Gutierrez with a time of 16:35, sophomore Dylan Filla with a time of 16:54, and freshman Tommy Elwood with a time of 17:01.

“When we won conference it kind of a put a target on our backs,” Chapa said. “We have to hold ourselves to a high standard to keep the momentum going. Every time we win the target just gets bigger and bigger with teams trying to take us down but we’re looking pretty good right now.”

The Indians will be running in their semi-state meet next Saturday.
