PB253731 emily edit 1 Emily Clarke, a Manzano High four year letter winner in both Cross Country and Track & Field, was the 2018 winner of the NMTCCCA's Sepulveda Scholarship.

Emily was the Team Captain for her Cross team from 2015 to 2017, a four year State Qualifier, 2018 All-State Top 10 Finisher in 6A and Top 100 Finisher at the Nike Cross Regional. All while carrying a 4.75 GPA. 

Academically, Emily was also a National Merit Semi-Finalist and a member of MESA and National Honor Society. Emily's teachers described her as " a passionate learner who stands by her values and searches for new challenges everyday". When you consider the amount of time Emily had to balance between her academic activities, her community service, work and athletics, holding a GPA of 4.75 was an incredible achievement and a testiment to her work ethic, internal motivation and dedication.

Jeremy Vehar, Emily's coach in both XC and Track, had this to say about the scholarship winner;
"In my 19 years of coaching, I have never had an athlete show as much dedication and love for her sport, her team, and her teammates. She brought the best out of her teammates, always encouraging them to be their best. We will truly miss everything Emily contributed to our team."

We are the NMTCCCA !!!

Begun in 1987 by a small group of visionaries with the goal of a NM Meet of Champions, as well as developing better communication and unification between all track and cross country coaches, the New Mexico Track and Cross Country Coaches Association was born and has grown to what you see today. Our association has and must continue to be the guiding force for positive change and the protection of all aspects of New Mexico Track and Cross Country that we believe important to our athletes and our coaches. Changes are a part of life. We are our best "Advocates" for helping to direct that change in a positive and constructive way. We must continue to "Educate" our membership and give them the best tools for success. And, as a professional organization, we must "Celebrate" those successes, those stories, those special moments and actions that make our sports such wonderful tools in helping to mold the youth of New Mexico. We ARE the NMTCCCA !!!
