Starr County Industrial Foundation


(STARR COUNTY – August 3, 2012) Every four years we are treated with a wonderful spectacle that is the Olympics. For two weeks we watch and marvel at the talent displayed by an elite few. We know the feats they perform are daunting, yet these athletes manage to master their sport so gracefully that they make them appear effortless.

For Starr County these London 2012 Olympics are even more thrilling, because they can claim one Olympian as their own. Stephen Saenz is a product of Starr County and a 2009 graduate of Rio Grande City High School. His accomplishments in the sport of shot put at the high school, collegiate and international level have provided him with countless achievements. His dominance in the sport earned him a spot in the 2012 Mexico Olympic Team where he competed today. His love for the sport has seen no boundaries and he proudly represented a nation that has such close and deep founded roots in Starr County.

In recognition of his achievements and those yet to come, please join Starr County for a Welcome Rally in honor of Olympian Stephen Saenz this Thursday, August 9, 2012. There will be a press conference at 4:00 pm at the Starr County Courthouse Annex followed by the Welcome Rally at the Rio Grande City High School Joe R. Sanchez Stadium at 7:00 pm where Stephen will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans.
