The first two official Runners Rising athletes Lexi Bolton and Jonatha Tapia took over our Instagram account this last weekend.
Lexi started the weekend off Friday with a typical day as a soccer student athlete mixed in with a special Fiesta “Dia en la Sombrilla” sneak peak. Alumni will remember this Fiesta event previously named “Fiesta UTSA”. Lexi even took some questions from Runners Rising followers before ending the night supporting her fellow Runners Rising official athlete, Jonathan Tapia, and the baseball team as they took on Charlotte.

Jonathan Tapia finished the weekend off Sunday with his gameday experience as he prepared to finish out the home stand series against Charlotte. We got to see a behind the scenes look at how our student athletes prep on their game days. The day ultimately ended with a “sweep steak” dinner for the baseball team after sweeping number 23rd ranked Charlotte.
