Athlete of the Week - Cruz Gomez
CBS 4 SPORTS - Congratulations to PSJA Memorial Distance Runner Cruz Gomez!
Gomez placed first out of hundreds of runners in last weekend's South Regional Foot Locker Championship. The race featured hundreds of runners from 14 states, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The Future Texas Longhorn is the first Rio Grande Valley athlete to ever win the competition and just the second athlete to qualify for the Foot Locker National Championship in December. He will also be participating in the National Nike Championship in December as well after being awarded a spot as an at-large bid.
Because of all his accomplishments, it should come as no surprise that Gomez is this week's DHR Health Athlete of the Week!
