SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Headed up by Alex Medrano's 11th place finish overall, the Southwestern men's cross country team had a strong showing at the Alamo City Classic, finishing fourth.
Medrano was the highest Division III finisher at the race, finishing in a time of 29:04.92. UT Brownsville's David Guillen won the event in 26:04.82. Medrano's time was nearly 20 seconds faster than his closest DIII competitor, Zach Zimdars of Trinity.
New to the cross country course but making a big impact is senior, Joe Sponsel. Sponsel was the second highest finisher for SU with a time of 29:54.67 and finished in 17th place with just four DIII competitors in front of him including teammate Medrano.
