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 women, led once again by Madi Monroe (34th, 23:30), did not have a full squad, but showed some grit as the rain started to fall mid-race to add another element of difficulty to the meet. Milla Gentry finished 40th with a time of 24:03 over 5 kilometers. Maddison Denny and Isabela Calderon finished 50th and 52ndto round out the team.
"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.
