Three Valley Athletes Sign With UTRGV Track and Field


(CBS 4 Sports) - The UTRGV Track and Field program added to their track and field team on Wednesday as three athletes from two schools signed letters of intent.

Harlingen distance runners Fernando Escobar and Edward Ramos signed side by side at a ceremony at the Harlingen High School cafeteria. Escobar and Ramos have run together since they were in junior high and were hoping to one day run in college together. They called joining the UTRGV track and field and cross country teams was a dream come true.

In La Feria, Juilan Trevino, a jumper for the Lions said he was intrigued when he spoke to UTRGV jumping coach Taylor Cipicchio who indicated to him that she could help improve his personal records, which is something Cipicchio has done with the current UTRGV athletes. Trevino, a four sport athlete at La Feria, hopes to major in Bio-medical engineering.
