SAN BERNARDINO, CA — The University of La Verne men's cross country team posted solid times Saturday at the competitive Coyote Challenge hosted by Cal State San Bernardino.
From the Coach
"The men surprised me today. They improved their spread by over a minute from Biola and most of them ran personal bests or close to it," said head coach Justin Wood. "We can build on today's performance and I'm excited to see what they do in two weeks."
Matthew Salas led the Leopards with a time of 26:39.5, his fastest time ever in the 8K. Senior Samuel Johnny and sophomore Eric Lopez-Elwell finished close behind each other as the Leopards' second and third finishers. Johnny crossed with a time of 27:17.1 and Lopez-Elwell posted a time of 27:17.5.
The Leopards placed eighth overall in the field of both NCAA Division II and III teams.
The Leopards have a week off before their next competition. The squad will head down the road to compete in the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational on October 6 at 8:30 a.m.Watch Live Follow ULV Athletics on Twitter Like us on Facebook Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
