Destiny Garza was been named as the National Christian College Athletic Associations (NCCAA) D1 Women’s Cross Country Athlete of the week during the 2015 season. It marked the first time a SAGU cross country athlete received a national honor. She was also named the Sooner Athletic Conference Women’s Runner of the Week.
Garza, a junior from Aldine, Texas, demolished the University of Dallas course with a personal record of 18:20. The course is known as “no PR hill” because of the grueling terrain. With her first place finish, she beat the second place runner by 1:19. This was Garza’s third meet in a row to be the meet champion. Her efforts helped her team to a third place finish overall.
