T-Birds Open Season at Western Texas




The NMJC Thunderbird Cross Country opened up the 2018 season at the Western Texas Open in Snyder, Texas. Due to some minor injuries the T-Birds only ran 3 runners at this opening meet. "We used this meet to gain experience" commented Coach Jeff Becker. "It would have been nice to have everyone running, but we are looking for bigger things at the end of the season and into the track season" added Becker. 


Individually, Freshman Dune Costes and Montserret Rios led the team with 3rd and 4th place finishes. Both Dune and Montserret ran well in their first college meet. Also running for the T-Birds was transfer Alyssa Frausto. Alyssa was running well, but faded back at the end of the race due to some sickness.   


NEXT UP: The T-Birds will be at the Texas Tech Open on Friday, September 14th
