RICHARDSON – Winner of last week’s East Texas Shootout, Texas A&M University-Commerce men’s cross country team’s Alex Speer has been named the Lone Star Conference Freshman of the Week.
Speer won the East Texas Shootout, hosted by A&M-Commerce, on Friday with a time of 25:15.80 in the 8K race. He has been the Lions’ top-finisher in both races this season and shaved about 50 seconds from his time from the first race.
