Miners Dominant in First Meet

Ruidoso, N.M.-  The UTEP men’s and women’s cross country teams kicked off their 2015 season on Friday afternoon at the US Forest Service Ranger Station National Park. The women ran a 4.5K race and the men ran a 6K race.

MEN’S RECAP

The men’s team, who is receiving votes in the national USTFCCCA poll, dominated straight from the start on a very narrow trail. All six men were hip by hip the whole race and finished in the top six spots.

“The men had a good solid performance and ran as a group,” head coach Paul Ereng said. “It is very difficult to do what they did, and I was very proud of them. It was not about who won, but more so running the race as a team.”

All the men athletes finished within two seconds of each other; Evans Kiprono (20:48.40), Antony Kosgei (20:49.01), Jonah Koech (20:49.40), Daniel Cheruiyot (20:49.66), Cosmas Boit (20:49.97) and Anthony Rotich (20:50.56).

Head to head, UTEP defeated New Mexico State, New Mexico, Texas Tech and Wayland Baptist.
