Babcock raises level as 'dual sport athlete'
El Paso, TX — Jade Babcock was a three-year letterwinner for the UTEP soccer team, helping the Miners capture win over win over the last four seasons. The Senior from Midland, Texas had a semester left of eligibility, and is planning on putting her best foot forward... on the track.
Babcock ran track before high school, and her freshman year at Midland High School, but found it competed with Soccer for her time, so she chose Soccer. With one semester left in college, and the soccer season over, Babcock has put all of her effort in running the 100M and 200M for the UTEP track team.
"Well, my soccer technique is kind of killing me right now, as far as track and soccer technique, but honestly, I have taken a lot of my mental strategies here, to track, as far as competitiveness, and just being confident. I'm honored, this is such an awesome program, very respectable and successful, so I am very honored to be a part of it."
The UTEP track and field team travels to the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa on April 24.
