The UTEP men’s cross country team will finish the regular season with a dual meet against Texas Tech this Saturday at the Mae Simmons Park starting at 8:30 a.m. MT.
Making the trip will be juniors Antony Kosgei, Esteban Montanez, sophomore Carvellion Horn, freshman Cornelius Kapel and senior Asa Guevara.
Kosgei is coming off a top-25 finish at the NCAA Pre-Nationals meet last week with an 8K time of 24:59.4. He was the sixth runner from the Mountain Region to cross the finish line.
Kapel will be a big factor for the Miners as the team inches closer to the Conference USA Championships on Oct. 28 in Hattiesburg, Miss. The Kenya native earned C-USA Athlete of the Week honor back on Sept. 12 for his performance at the Lori Fitzgerald Invitational, where he captured gold in a time of 20:05.6.
