Jatana Folston was the lone athlete representing E.O.T.O at the Texas A&M High School Indoor Classic. Folston, didn't let that bother her though running a FL#1 and US#12 400m dash time of 56.43. She was 4th in the race and was 4th last year at the 2A outdoor state championship meet.

Coach Alex Armenteros brought his St. Thomas Aquinas squad out to College Station and the Raiders tallied a couple of fourth place showings as well. Senior Jermanie Byrd who was third in the 300m hurdles at state in 2017 finished 4th in the 60mH.

The girls 4x400m relay  ran an impressive 3:54.88, one of the fastest times in the country this indoor season.

Sophomore Zahria Allers had perhaps the best performance for STA sprinting to a US#10 200m time of 24.71s. She was 6th at last year's state meet and ran a wind legal 23.96 at Flo Golden South. Teammate Hannah Lowenstein also scored points for the team with a 7th place showing in the high jump.

"My coaching staff and I are pleased with our athletes performance," Armenteros said after the meet. "Considering it was our first time running indoor, the athletes handled it very well. We had a few hiccups, mostly technical, from the inexperience of running indoor. My assistant coaches did a good job of getting the athletes prepare for the meet. We enjoyed our experience at Texas A&M."
