    Default Gonzaga Cross Country and Track sign James Mwaura!!

    This is the equivalent of Gonzaga Basketball signing a 5 star recruit!

    James is a national class athlete and I'm so excited to see him come to Gonzaga! Congratulations Coach Tyson!

    Thanks to Angelo for the scoop!

    One of the top distance recruits of the Class of 2018 has made his college decision.
    And while it may surprise some, Tacoma Lincoln (WA) High senior James Mwaura felt like he found a perfect fit in Gonzaga University, a program led by Pat Tyson about four hours east in Spokane.
    "We got him in the door and James went down there and he just loved it," Mwaura's high school coach, Andrew Fuller, said. "Here we are, we're Zags now."
    The connection Mwaura found with Gonzaga began in his sophomore year. Tyson, a Lincoln alumnus, had sent Mwaura his first recruiting letter in 2016.
    "Ever since then, it's been about Gonzaga," Fuller said. "That's the first school that showed interest of him."

    If Pat had the schollies to give out, he would be getting guys & gals like this consistently.

    Good news on that front, Sitting! Pat has recently gotten a schollie infusion and he's in really good shape on that front!!

    Now, we've got to build him a track!

    Team went from 2 full scholarships for each gender to 6 for each, or 12 total scholarships!!

    We want a few more, but with that many schollies, Tyson can build a national caliber program!

    Also, we're fact finding on building a track. We're going to make it happen. Don't know how or when, just that we're going to do it.
