Nine athletes from LISD will compete at the state meet, which begins today
Estacado junior Joseph Rios knows what the state-meet atmosphere in Austin is like. He got to live it vicariously through his older brother, Raymond, who competed at state once in wrestling and three times in track.
“He made me set my goals a little bit higher, made me want to do better than he did, try and get out of his shadow a little bit,” Joseph Rios said last week.
Raymond Rios, a two-time state silver medalist in the 800 meters, now is a freshman redshirt on the Texas Tech track team.
