Men's XC Finishes 5th in NorCal Preview


After a bye week, the Bear Cub Cross Country team returned to action at Sierra College for the Northern California Championship Preview.  With top competition from the entire northern California region, it was a great day to test the strength of the squad.  The Sierra College course features rolling hills and difficult switchback sections that made for a challenging day for all.

The Men kicked it off with a solid performance finishing 5th overall in the invitational section of the meet.  Paden Collard lead the charge with a 14th place finish and a time of 22:28 for 4 miles.  Andrew Engel debuted with a respectable 23:38 and a 32nd place finish.  Nathan Hayes, Luke Baird, and Jimmy Carreras rounded out the top 5 with 42nd, 46th, and 55th place finishes respectfully. In the Men's Overflow Race, Conor Schott bounced back from the disappointment of last race with a solid 13th place finish with a time of 26:00 for the 4 mile race.  Peadar Kileen ran his first collegiate race and finished 23rd with a time of 28:02, while Isaac Magallon finished 24th with a time of 28:20

"We learned a lot today," said Head Coach David Wellman, "It was a shock to the system, but now we know where we need to be when we get another shot."  The Northern California Championships will be held at the same Sierra College Course on November 5th. The Bear Cubs will again take a bye week and race again at the Chabot Twilight Meet on Sep. 24th.
