The Thunderbirds played host to the Region V Championships this Saturday, October 25th.

The Thunderbirds finished third in the team scoring losing to El Paso and South Plains due to battling some injuries. While the third place finish was disappointing, it still advances the ladies to the NJCAA Championships in Lubbock, TX on November 8th.

Individually, the Thunderbirds had two runners in the top ten. Purity Murray finished second and Naomi Tanui finished sixth.

“Purity and Naomi had great races” commented Coach Jeff Becker. “Purity really battled for the championship and Naomi keeps getting better and better.” Also having a good day was Isidra Guerrero. Isidra finished in 15th place and was NMJC’s fourth runner today. “We have some of the ladies that are battling with injuries and that really hurt us today, but I know these ladies will be healthy and ready for nationals,” added Coach Becker

The Thunderbirds will be in Lubbock Saturday, November 8th for the NJCAA Championships. See the article from the Hobbs News-Sun.
