Track season has just really gotten under way for Kilgore High School, and already, Zoe Craven continues her mission to do well in everything in which she competes.
Craven, one of a handful of Lady Bulldogs who also run cross-country and play soccer, finished second in the girls 3200 meter run in the Lobo Relays in Longview on Friday.
Craven finished with a run of 12 minutes, 19.40 seconds, and teammate Cristina Rosas was fourth (13 minutes, 3.95 seconds).
It was one of several good performances by the KHS track teams, who are off this week for spring break.
