Rotich makes it three


October 7, 2018

RICHARDSON, Texas — For the third consecutive week, Mercy Rotich ran away with Lone Star Conference honors.

The Eastern New Mexico University senior was again named LSC female runner of the week, according to a Thursday release from the league office.

Rotich was the top Division II finisher at last week’s New Mexico Junior College Invite. She placed third overall at 18:25.77.

It was the second time this season and fifth time in Rotich’s career that she has finished in the top three of a meet — including her second-place finished Sept. 14 at the Texas Tech Open.

Rotich holds the top three 5K times in school history, including her 12th-place finish in the Arkansas Chile Pepper Festival at 17:37.7.

The Greyhounds don’t run again until Oct. 20, when they head to Canyon for the Lone Star Conference Preview. It will be followed two weeks later by the LSC championship.
