Tuloso-Midway's Ace Castillo has already proven he's one of the best runners in South Texas, and now he's set to continue his athletic and academic career with the Rice Owls.

Castillo signed his letter of intent to run cross country and track for the Owls earlier Wednesday. The multi-time district and regional champ says he wants to eventually go to med school and that Rice was the perfect blend of academics and athletics for him.
