Marble Falls cross country head coach Chris Schrader's approach to training may be unorthodox to some, but the results are hard to argue.

The Mustangs boys team qualified for the UIL 5A State cross country meet with a fourth-place finish at Regionals on Oct. 28 in Corpus Christi; two individual girls runners – Ambrie Lizcano and Bailey Goggans – also punched their ticket to the State meet.

The Mustangs had only three runners qualify for the final meet last season – Goggans, Jaden Johnson and Bryer Atkinson. The team has seen improvement across the board this season under Schrader.
