Jorge Ruiz

MASON CITY- NIACC sophomore Jorge Ruiz was selected as the ICCAC Division II male cross country athlete of the week for the week of Sept. 21-27.

Ruiz claimed the individual title last Friday in a time of 27 minutes, 15 seconds at the Southwestern Spartan Classic and led the No. 3 Trojans to the team title.

Ruiz’ highest finish in a collegiate race before the Spartan Classic victory was an 11th-place finish at the NJCAA Region XI meet in 2019. He was the first NIACC runner to win a race since Abdiaziz Wako won the 2018 Trent Smith Invitational.
