UTEP Cross Country to compete at NCAA Mountain Region Championships

The UTEP Cross Country team will hit the road to Salt Lake City, Utah, to compete at the 2019 NCAA Mountain Region Championships Friday, November 15 hosted by The University of Utah.

“The Mountain Region is one of the most competitive and toughest regions in the country,” UTEP Head Coach Paul Ereng said. “Most regions will bring two teams to the NCAA National Championships [Nov. 23 in Terre Haute, In.], but the Mountain Region will bring like six men’s teams and about five women’s teams. It’s a very intense competition. The top distance runners come from that region, I believe because they’re residents in the mountains and the high altitude helps.”

The men’s 10K race will begin at noon MT. Making the trip for the men’s squad is Cory Calvani, Titus Cheruiyot, Cornelius Kapel, Rodgers Korir, Kayn Quinones, Boaz Ronoh, Michael Sims and Kenneth Talavera.

The women’s 6K will set off at 11 a.m. MT. Competing for the women are Carolyne Chepkosgei, Linda Cheruiyot, Karoline Daland, Joan Kimaiyo, Winny Koech, Andrea Lucero and Jacquilyn Orozco.
