FRISCO - Texas A&M-Corpus Christi sophomore Patrick Kimeli has been named men's Southland Conference Cross Country Athlete of the Week.

Kimeli recorded his best time and finish as an Islanders runner, taking first-place honors at the Ricardo Romo/Six Flags Fiesta Texas Classic. He finished with a time of 14:52 on the soggy 5K course in San Antonio Friday night in helping the Islanders to a first-place finish.

"Patrick and the rest of the team had a very good day at UTSA," said head coach Shawn Flanagan "He has made good progress since last year and we are very much excited about his future."

The team hosts the Islanders Splash this Friday, the women run at 6 p.m. and the men 6:25 at West Guth Park.
