The Dripping Springs mountain bike team is off to a fast start this year and completed one of the most successful races in its history.
Ben Marsan, a Dripping Springs High sophomore, is the first team member to claim a first place finish at the Wrangle at Warda event Feb. 19. Marsan also won the leaders jersey at the event. He placed third in the race prior.
Izzy Estrada is a home schooled junior and placed second and would have done the same or better in the first race had she not gotten two flats and had to run her bike to the finish line, said head coach Lance Thornton in an emailed response.
Middle school student Kolter Leisy claimed a podium finish by placing second last weekend and fourth in the first race.
Dripping Springs finished the Wrangle in Warda with a 7th place overall finish.
