David Stapleton was New Mexico's lone representative in the steeplechase.
It seemed that New Mexico was a bit less in evidence this year than in previous years at the Great Southwest Classic. You can probably chalk that up to a few difference factors.
One, the traditional yellow singlets worn by New Mexico competitors are (at least mostly) gone. It used to be easy to spot New Mexico in a Great Southwest crowd. Not any longer.
But, there's more to it than that. Perhaps it's because of the extra time period between state and Great Southwest. Perhaps it's something else. But, the bottom line is that we'd love to see more than we saw from the Land of Enchantment today.
What follows is an almost comprehensive photo album of the New Mexico athletes competing at Great Southwest on Friday. There will be more on Saturday, and we'll pick those up, too. But, for now, enjoy the Friday photos.
