2020 Cross Country Succes!

There are two young ladies I would like to highlight from Texas Thunder Track Club. 1st Emma Wade, an 8th grader, 2nd Isa Conde Frankenberg, a freshman. 
These two young ladies embraced and conquered their cross country seasons. 

Emma Wade is an 8th grader in LISD at Styles Middle school. She won all of her races, was district champ and dropped amazing times in her 2 mile races. 

Isa Conde Frankenberg is a freshman in LISD at Cedar Park High School. She was always in the top 3 finishers her entire season, low 17’s in her 5k races, and was crowned the 5A state champion. 

Both of these young ladies have great work ethic and embraced the process with Coach Roddy to help them reach their goals. We are very excited to see what their future holds.

Looking forward to what the next month bring for such an awesome team.

October 17th last FEAST meet

We are so proud of these athletes today! Everyone ran a great race! These young Thunder athletes work hard each and every day. They are upstanding students and role models for other student athletes. The weather today blanketed Thunder runners with cloudy skies and cool temperatures allowing them to run hard and bring home PRs and hardware. Trusting Coach Roddy’s training and guidance helped them achieve their goals. Way to go!! Can’t wait to see more of these Thunder athletes.

Cross Country Success
Texas Thunder athletes showed up and  showed out taking the meet by the horns! The day was overcast with a few sprinkles and these young aspiring athletes flew through this 2 mile trail. Our 5-6 graders started off with huge PRs and collected hardware. Marc won the race. Esai and Leona had an amazing battle coming down the home stretch. Madisyn, Wesley, and Sasha dropped time and let the competition know they were there to race.  Then the 7-8th grade stations hit the course. These young ladies shook up the competition and brought home hardware. Emma, Leilani, Arethea and Annabelle continued to push to the next level and continued the Texas Thunder medal collection. Then the final race of the day was tackled by our 7-8th boys Christian and AJ. These young men worked there way through the competition to hit PRs and are ready for  more competition. Looking forward to see these amazing athletes at the Texas vs World meet next week.

Middle School 2 mile

Wow!! What an amazing meet today for the Texas Thunder middle school athletes. Our girls and boys had a great first cross country race of the season. These young athletes just competed on the track last week and then brought their talents to the XC course. Looking forward to the progress and PRs coming their way.

High School 2mile - Anna Maier


We are so excited to introduce this young lady to the cross country high school world. She jumped in there with the top group with out hesitation and trusted her training with Coach Roddy. She lost her shoe after mile one but did not quit. Continuing to fight the entire time, finished at a 14:39!!! She beat her best time a minute and twenty seconds! Keep up the great work and dedication!!! Go kill your high school season!

Consistency is key

Our world is upside down and inside out right now. The one things these kids know, is that Coach Roddy and Texas Thunder is here for them. Offering 3 different practice times helps keep the groups small and helps everyone feel safe. This allows the athletes to continue to train, gain speed, and reach their goals. We cannot control the ever changing policies of today in dealing with the pandemic, but this team is doing a great job at keeping it ‘normal’ at the track.
