San Antonio – St. Mary’s University cross country coach James Kling announced on Wednesday the signing of San Antonio native Michelle Tello to a national letter of intent to join the Rattlers, starting with the 2008-09 academic year.
Tello comes to St. Mary’s after graduating from Providence Catholic High School. At Providence, Tello ran cross country for coach Jennifer Dean and was named the Most Valuable Runner for her team as a senior.
Tara Wicketts (Sr., Cibolo) and Amy Crissman (So., San Antonio) each earned All-Heartland Conference recognition during the 2007 season, helping St. Mary’s to a third place finish at the conference meet. The Rattlers will return four of their top five runners from last season and open the 2008 season on August 30 at the University of the Incarnate Word Invitational.
