UCCS men go the extra mile
Dedication. That's a word that means a lot to most athletes in any collegiate sport. University of Colorado at Colorado Springs athletes Brad Winn and Aaron Rubalcaba-Lopez drove the extra mile to show they know what the word means.
Wanting to have a meet over their spring break, Winn and Rubalcaba-Lopez drove themselves to a meet so that they could compete. That doesn't sound amazing in itself, until you realize that this meet was at the University of California-San Diego.
Winn started out the meet on Friday with a 1st place finish in the 3000-meter steeplechase, his first of the 2005 season.
Rubalcaba-Lopez had to witness Winn's performance as well as the women run before he could get on the track Saturday March 26th. After being seeded sixth in the 5000 meters, Rubalcaba-Lopez ended up winning the race.
Asked if maybe UC-San Diego now knows who UCCS is, Rubalcaba-Lopez responded with an emphatic "Oh yeah!!"
