Congratulations to Judson High School senior Raymond Gonzales who won the 2,000 meter Steeplechase at the Texas Relays. If you've never seen a steeplechase event, it is an amazing test of stamina, agility and strength as runners navigate over and through different obstacles like hurdles and water to make it to the finish line. Raymond won this big race and is now ranked #2 in the country for this event as a high school student athlete. He is up for Male Athlete of the Week on the Texas MileSplit website. Take a look.
