CLAREMONT, CA — The University of La Verne women's cross country opened the 2018 season with a tri-meet against Pomona-Pitzer and Occidental College.
From the Coach: "The women's team showed a lot of potential today. Our one and two runners, Melissa and Rachael, were impressive up front and the supporting cast did a great job closing out the team scoring. We aren't at full strength yet so I'm looking forward to seeing what our team can do when they all line up together."
Sophomore Michelle Suarez finished third for La Verne, clocking in at 16:25. Sophomores Yasmin Lopez and Ashley Garnica finished one second apart from each other with Lopez ending at 17:14 and Garnica at 17:15.
Next Race: The Leopards compete next at the Biola Invitational at 8 a.m. next Saturday, September 8. The race will be held at Ted Craig Regional Park in Fullerton.Follow ULV Athletics on Twitter Like us on Facebook Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
