Mutai Named C-USA Athlete Of The Week

UTEP freshman Patrick Mutai was named Conference USA’s Athlete of the Week on Wednesday.

Mutai won his first collegiate cross country race helping UTEP to its third-consecutive Lori Fitzgerald Invitational title last Friday. A 2004 NCAA Outdoor All-American in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, Mutai led a pack of four Miners to the finish line as he crossed the 6,665-meter race in 21:30.84.

The Miners will run at the Lobo Invitational on Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M. The men’s 8k race begins at 8:40 a.m. followed by the women’s 6k race at 9:10 a.m. Participating teams include Adams State (defending NAIA national champions), Colorado State (2004 NCAA participant), LSU, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Texas Tech and Western State College.
