Distance runner Anthony Rotich claimed his second Conference USA Athlete of the Week honor of the season on Tuesday.
The sophomore ran the 3,000m steeplechase for the first time this season at the Mt. SAC Relays. The All-American not only clocked in a persona best, but also posted the second-fastest time in the nation of 8:37.47. The Kenyan native is ranked first in the conference in the event that he garnered his first All-American honor of his collegiate career.
This is Rotich’s third C-USA Athlete of the Week honor of his career and the Miners fourth consecutive honor of the season.
The UTEP track and field team will travel to Des Moines, Iowa this weekend to compete in the annual Drake Relays.
