Guevara Garners Conference USA Athlete of the Week

UTEP track’s senior Asa Guevara nabbed his first Conference USA weekly honor for his performance in the 400m at the UTEP Springtime, the league office announced Tuesday afternoon.

The Trinidad and Tobago native clocked a time of 46.63, taking gold in his last collegiate competition at Kidd Field. Guevara’s time ranks him 12th in the nation and first overall in the conference. At the 2018 C-USA indoor championships, he notched a fourth-place finish in the 400m.

The senior will travel to the Texas state capital for the 91st Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays Built by The Home Depot. The competition in Austin will begin Wednesday with the multi-events and will run through Saturday at Mike A. Myers Stadium.
