Eastwood's Blanco to run at UTEP

Friday, July 1, 2011 - 7:43pm

Juan Blanco proved that he is a Division I talent at the State track and field meet and UTEP rewarded him with a scholarship. The distance runner posted a time of 4:11 in the 1600m this season, second fastest time in El Paso history and now caps off his impressive year with a collegiate scholarship.

"It's awesome when you get to do what you love and you don't have to pay for it. So it's a win win for me. It couldn't get any better than this," said Blanco.

Juan plans to major in biology.
