Alonzo Chavez may be only a freshman for the New Mexico Highlands University cross country team, but he ran like a seasoned veteran Saturday morning.
With a time of 26:05, Chavez won the men’s individual title at the Buffalo Stampede in Canyon, Texas, hosted by West Texas A&M. The former Mora Ranger outkicked Tye Doty of Tarleton State to win the 8-kilometer men’s race by nearly six seconds.
Seven of the top 13 men wore NMHU purple and white, assuring the Cowboys of a meet championship even without No. 1 man Henrique Chavez, who sat out the race.
