Jason Thurman Joins Cougar Cross Country Squad
COLUMBIA -- Head men's and women's cross country coach Tim Cornell officially announced Thursday that he has signed Jason Thurman to a Letter of Intent to run the Cougars this fall.
A Boonville, Missouri native, Thurman just finished up his senior year at Boonville High School where he was a state qualifier in cross country in 2011 as well as a sectional qualifier in the 800m in 2012. In just his first season competing in cross country and track, Jason posted personal best times of 4:47 in the 1600m and 2:02 for the 800m races.
"Jason is a relatively inexperienced athlete when it comes to distance running, but his raw talent will serve him well," said Cornell. "I am excited to see Jason progress as he possesses the talent to become a great runner."
