Feb. 12, 2008
UTEP Track and Field Coach Bob Kitchens announced on Tuesday that Racquel Jones has signed a national letter of intent to join the Miners for the 2009 season.
"Racquel is a raw sprinter with a lot of upside," Kitchens said. "We really like her and think she is going to be a good asset to our program."
Jones is currently attending Western High School in Baltimore, Md. She has personal bests of 7.40 seconds in the 55 meters, 24.74 seconds in the 200 meters and 18'8" in the long jump.
She earned All-America honors in the 4x200 meter relay at Nike Indoor Nationals in 2007, as well as All-State recognition in the 200 meters outdoors. She was a member of Western High's two-time state champion 4x100 and 4x200 meter relay teams.
