Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) track and field team Trinity University Invitational

“The idea with an early meet, especially for us since we do not run indoor track, is to get the cobwebs out.  Luckily the competition was good enough to push us to do just that,” explains head coach Jason Covarrubias .

SAGU All-American Destiny Garza took home the first place medal in the 10,000m.  She finished in 38:40, beating the second place finisher by nearly five minutes.  Freshman Caitlin Cruz placed 29 th in her first college 1,500m with the time of 5:52 and transfer Fille “Fifi” Kinyamahanga placed 11 th in the 5,000m with the time of 23:26.

The men’s team was led by freshman Robert Herrera who placed second in the 10,000m with the time of 35:38.  Herrera was followed closely by sophomore Adrian Cedillo who crossed the finish line in third place with the time of 35:47.  Freshman Raul Olmos competed in both the 1,500m and the 800m and finished 4:29 (29 th place) and 2:07 (19 th place).  Junior sprinter Cameron Solomon also competed strongly in the 400m (54.64) and the 200m (24.0).

“All in all we got better at Trinity. It is not always about times early in the season, it’s simply about sticking your neck out there and competing and we did that,” remarks Covarrubias.

SAGU will travel next to Mississippi College for a meet in Clinton, Mississippi on Saturday, March 4.
