It was a feeling of déjà vu for some of Katy ISD’s top cross country competitors Monday morning.

Cinco Ranch sophomore Heidi Nielson and Tompkins’ boys team defended their respective Region III-6A titles in Huntsville, with Nielson repeating as the girls champion with a time of 18-minutes, 17.1-seconds, and the Falcons boys repeating by earning 63 points to win first place in the boys team division.

Nielson, who is undefeated in races this season and has swept the district and regional championships for the second straight year, bested her time from last year’s regional meet by 27 seconds.

“It gives me confidence knowing I’ve already run these courses and know what to expect,” Nielson said. “When I come out here, I think about what I’ve accomplished and it just makes me push a little harder.”

Cinco Ranch sophomore Sophie Atkinson, who placed third, and Seven Lakes junior Molly Humes, who placed fourth, will join Nielson at the Class 6A state meet Nov. 3 in Round Rock.

The top four teams and top 10 individuals not on the four teams advance to state.

The newest member of the Houston Astros, José Abreu met with the media Tuesday and was asked about his dropoff in home runs last season with the White Sox. Abreu's home run numbers dropped from 30 to 15 over the past two seasons.

At Tuesday's press conference, Abreu said expecting 30 homers every year might be a little optimistic, but playing at Minute Maid could be an easy fix to boosting his numbers this season.

Plus, The Killer B's do a deep dive into his stats and find some reasonable answers to why he had a down tick in home runs last season.
