Murillo Cross Country Runner of the Week

Senior runner Maria Murillo was named Devine Cross Country “Runner of the Week” based on her 5-year dedication to the sport, her outstanding leadership, and her perseverance through a tough season last year. She was extremely dedicated to her summer workouts and is determined to make a statement in her final season.
“I went through a rough patch last year, but I overcame it with the support of my teammates,” stated the very team-oriented Murillo. “Without them pushing me and believing in me every single day, I wouldn’t have been able to overcome those obstacles to be where I am today.”
Maria selected the Prefontaine quote “don’t be afraid to give up the good and go for the great” as her motivation for the season. Congratulations Mari for being the first Devine Cross Country “Runner of the Week” for the 2018 campaign.
