Lion Cross Country Heading to Long Beach Relays

Feb. 13, 2003

Los Angeles, CA -- The Loyola Marymount men's and women's cross country teams will travel to Long Beach State University Saturday, February 15 to compete in the Long Beach Relays. The Lions also announced their five allowable NCAA track meets that will make up the "non-traditional" spring segment for 2003.

"One of the upsides to being a 'cross country-only' school is that we can have a little fun with our schedule in the spring," Lions head coach Scott Guerrero said. "We know we have to train year-round in order to be competitive in the fall, but in the spring we can pick and choose meets and events without having to worry about team scoring, conference championships and the like. It's actually kind of cool, given the fact that we are all distance runners."

Guerrero became the first full-time Cross Country coach in LMU history after serving as a part-time coach for the last 5 seasons.

The Lions will also compete at the Ben Brown Invitational in Fullerton, CA on March 8, the Occidental Distance Carnival on March 21, the Johnny Mathis Invitational in San Francisco, and the Long Beach Invitational on April 18.
