Cross Country Competes at Mustang Challenge
The two squads are back in action for the first time in two weeks.
LOS ANGELES - Following a two-week break from competition, the LMU men's and women's cross country teams are back on the race course on Saturday, Sept. 19, competing in the Mustang Challenge, hosted by The Master's College at Central Park in Santa Clarita, Calif.
Racing begins at 8 a.m. with the women's 5k, followed by the men's 8k at 8:45 a.m. Both the men's and women's course records were set by UCLA runners in 2013. The men's record stands at 24:50.11 and the women's record is 17:01.56.
Based on the season' schedule, the Lions have traditionally sent a "B" squad of athletes to the Mustang Challenge, but this year will send a full squad on both the men's and women's side. The field of 21 men's teams will include five NCAA DI squads while 23 women's teams will include six competing Division I programs.
LMU opened the 2015 season two weeks ago at the Mark Covert Classic in Brea, Calif. Sophomore Jack Polerecky and junior Kayla de Bondt took the respective individual titles in the men's and women's races. Additionally, the Lion men claimed the overall team championship while the women took second to San Diego State.
