UTEP Practice Report: Thursday, Aug. 8 – Miners Enjoy Relaxed Day on the Links

RUIDOSO, N.M. – After a brief walk-through on Thursday morning, the UTEP Miners enjoyed the rest of the afternoon away from the gridiron on the team’s fourth full day at the MCM Eleganté Lodge & Resort in Ruidoso.

The Miners headed out to the practice fields first thing on Thursday morning for a light walk-through, but were able to have a laid-back afternoon with the players being given the option between hitting the links to do some golfing or head to the local movie theater.

The majority of the week has been filled with physical training sessions and team meetings, but many of the Miners traded in pads for golf clubs on Thursday. The long drive and putting competitions highlighted the afternoon on the golf course with players trying their hand at golf.

The Miners return to the practice fields at 9 a.m. on Friday at the MCM Eleganté Lodge & Resort in Ruidoso, New Mexico. UTEP will practice in Ruidoso for the remainder of the week before heading back to campus on Sunday.

The 2019 season begins with the Miners playing hosts to Houston Baptist on Saturday, Aug. 31 in the Sun Bowl. Kickoff for the season-opener is set for 6 p.m. MT.
