Alex Barrientos to Run Cross Country at Lourdes

Posted: Updated:
Lourdes University head coach Jeremy Snow has announced that Alex Barrientos has signed a letter of intent and will run cross country for the Gray Wolves beginning with the 2014 season.

Barrientos earned First Team All-State honors as junior and senior while leading Defiance High School to a state championship in 2013.  He also helped the Bulldogs earn a runner-up finish at the state meet as a junior.

“I expect Alex to make an immediate impact to our program,” Snow stated.  “I’m excited we’re able to sign another runner of his caliber, as he is another student-athlete we can build our program around.”

Barrientos was a three-time First Team All-Western Buckeye League selection during his time at Defiance, and earned First Team All-Region accolades as a senior after winning the district championship. 

He has a personal best time of 16:06 over a five-kilometer course.
