FORT WORTH – Agnes Kemboi was named Big 12 Runner of the Week the conference announced Tuesday. This is Kemboi’s first honor of the season, and the first award earned by the TCU cross country program from the Big 12.
Kemboi controlled the women’s 5K at the Ken Garland Invitational in Denton Saturday. The senior crossed the line first in a time of 17:02.72 and helped the Horned Frogs reach second place in the team standings at the event.
A 2011 NCAA Championships qualifier, Kemboi has started the 2012 campaign very strongly. The Eldoret, Kenya native started the season off with a second-place effort at the Bear Twilight Invitational in Waco before her first-place performance on Saturday.
Kemboi and the TCU women’s cross country team will be back in action on Friday, Sept. 28 at the Notre Dame Invitational in South Bend, Ind.
