Barraza named AAC athlete of the week
The decision was made so Barraza could come back in 2017 when the team could possibly have a more improved squad. That is definitely the case right now.
Alongside junior runner G.J. Reyna, the men’s cross-country team placed fifth as a team at A&M, improving on their ninth place performance in 2016 and seventh place performance in 2015.
Right now, Barraza and the cross-country team are preparing to compete at the Cross Country Pre-Nationals on Oct. 14 in Louisville, Kentucky. With Barraza’s return, the men believe they have a legitimate shot at a conference title.
