Cross-country and track and field adds Julio Sanchez

The men’s track and field team and cross-country team have added Julio Sanchez to its 2021 squad.

Sanchez calls Philadelphia his home, and he attended Brackenridge High School in San Antonio.

At Brackenridge, Sanchez was a three-time district champ, a state qualifier and a four-time regional qualifier. He also excelled in the classroom as an A&B honoree.

Head Coach Patrick Torres commented, “We’re really excited to add Julio to the team. The men’s team is only getting deeper, and Julio should be a contributor right away in cross country and track. He’s a proven winner, and once we get him acclimated to the challenges of moving up to the collegiate distances he’ll really shine. I’m excited we get to kick off our 2021 recruiting class with a great kid like Julio.”

The cross-country team will begin its season on Jan. 29 at the UIW Cross-Country Invitational, while the track and field team will have its first competition on March 5.
