Moreno, who is originally from Mesquite, worked his way up from the rear of the pack by passing several runners in the final laps on the 200m-banked track.

Sophomore Shea Johnson followed Moreno in the second heat, finishing 12th overall with a time of 4:41.17, while sophomore teammate Cris Santana placed 14th in heat one of the 3,000m with a time of 9:51.34.

Jared Lautenslager, also running unattached in the 3,000m, ran 8:43.56 and finished 12th in the third heat.

Hill College’s second indoor track meet will be Feb. 10-11 at the Jarvis Scott Open at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.
