Koech Garners C-USA Athlete of the Week

Junior Winny Koech was named the Conference USA Cross Country Women’s Athlete of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday.

The distance runner claimed first place at the Lobo Invitational on Saturday. The Kenya native clocked in a time of 17:42.7 in the collegiate 5K run. The women’s team finished first, second, third, fourth and 24th, securing a team score of 24 points.

This is the second C-USA Athlete of the Week honor for Koech. Last season, Koech received All-American honors after a 19th-place finish at the NCAA Championships.

The Miners will return to action on Saturday, Sept. 15 when they co-host the Lori Fitzgerald Open in Las Cruces, N.M.
