(ALAMOSA, Colo.) – Trinidad State head Cross Country/Track and Field coach Lauren Martin is happy to announce the signing of Riley Allen from Craig, Colorado. Riley has competed for the Moffat County cross country and track teams with much success throughout his career. Riley currently has a best time of 4:42 in the 1600 meters at the beginning of his senior track season. This past fall he placed 20th at the Colorado State Cross Country Championships, leading his team to a ninth place finish.
"Riley is going to be a great addition to our team in many ways. He's a great student, great athlete, and great person who will help our team atmosphere as well as our performances," praised coach Martin. "I think that Riley has the potential to achieve great things. We have a great group of young men coming together next fall, and Riley is a big piece of that. I couldn't be happier to have him become a Trojan."
Allen will join the growing Trinidad State Cross Country and Track programs in Alamosa next fall as they seek to improve upon a successful first year of competition, which saw them garner two All-American awards after qualifying to the National Championships.
