One year later, Isaiah Thompson is named the Big West Freshman of the Year. Just last week he claimed an individual championship in the 25th annual Vanguard Invitational, hosted in Costa Mesa.
While discussing his success, Thompson accredits much of it to his team. “Our team is close knit. Having the same schedules, we wake up together for 7 A.M. practice. It is not easy running cross country in college,” said Thompson.
