Rockhold named Mountain West Men’s Cross Country Athlete of the Week

Senior cross country and track and field athlete Cole Rockhold has earned the Men’s Mountain West Cross Country Athlete of the Week after a standout performance at the Nuttycombe Wisconsin Invitational.

Rockhold placed ninth at the Sept. 28 meet in Madison, Wisc., the highest placing of any individual Ram in the meet’s 10-year history.

His finish marks the first time a Ram has placed in the top ten at the meet and surpassed the Rams’ previous highest placer, Jerrell Mock, who was the previous top performer at the meet, finishing 16th in 2017.

Rockhold has had many accolades in his career, including being named a 2017 All-American. This award is the fourth weekly award he has received from the league, his second in cross country. He is the first member of the Ram’s cross country team to receive a weekly award this season.

Rockhold led the rest of the Rams’ team to a sixth-place finish out of 33 teams at the meet, placing them ahead of 11 ranked teams. 

The Rams cross country team will take the week off before their next competition. They will return Oct. 13 for Pre-Nationals at the Fort Hayes State University Tiger Open at 8 a.m. MT.
