Oct. 25, 2009

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - This weekend some of the Cross Country Lions wrapped up their season at the CSU Fullerton Titan Invitational. The Titans hosted the meet on the Cal State Fullerton campus Friday afternoon where the Lions raced against USC, UCI, USD, CSUF Fullerton and Cal Coast.

The women were led by sophomore Stephanie Felix who came in 23rd overall in 19:26 for the 5k course. Felix ended her season with her fastest 5k of the 2009 season at this weekend's Fullerton Invite. Following Felix, sophomore Kelly McEnerney came in with a time of 20:08 placing 35th overall and junior Shea Franklin in 20:19 placing 36th overall. Rounding out the women's squad junior Danielle Ferree came in 39th overall in 20:32.

The men were once again led by freshman Greg Innes who finished 17th overall in a time of 26:26 for the 8k distance. Innes has led the Lion's B squad all season and has continued to show that as a young runner he has a lot of talent and potential to contribute for the Lions in the future. Next across the line for the Lions, Junior Michael Herrera finished 26:39 placing 19th overall while freshman Michael Carlone finished in 27:03 and 24th overall. For Carlone, this race marked another huge PR of over 15 seconds better than his previous 8k time this season. Rounding out the men Oran Arms came in 37th overall in 28:12 while Jacques Delouche came in 53rd overall.

While the varsity squad has just under a week till they travel up north for the West Coast Conference Championships, the rest of the Lions were able to have their last in season race at the CSU Fullerton Invite. Coach Scott Guerrero commented, "It is a good chance to give the rest of the squad a chance to wrap up their season with some closure."
