Name: Jose Magaña

Year: Junior

Team: Track and Field

Stats: Broke indoor school record in 800 meters race with time of 1:57.08 and ran career best 4:19.46 mile.

Statement: “I didn’t know what to expect coming into the race but I knew if I tried my best I’d be okay. It turned out for the best: breaking 4:20 in the mile, a dream of mine since sophomore year of high school, and getting the 800 indoor school record. I could not have done it without my teammates who have trained with me everyday and my coaches who have guided us as a team with a desire to win. I’ve learned a lot from this race and will continue to strive to get faster along with my strong-willed teammates.”
