MXC Sets Several PRs in San Bernardino

SAN BERNARDINO, CA — Matthew Salas and Alexander Medina ran program top-10 times and the University of La Verne men's cross country showed major improvement at the Coyote Challenge Saturday morning.

From the Coach

"We are trending in the right direction now and these results really reinforce that," said Head Coach Justin Wood. "I wanted to see focus and a full race effort. The intensity was by far our best of the season." 


The Leopards were led by Salas who ran the fasted 8K time in La Verne history. The junior clocked in at 25:11.14, almost a minute and a half faster than he ran on the same course a year ago. 

Medina, just a freshman, posted the sixth-fastest time in La Verne history with a final time of 26:06.68. Joel Reyes finished third for the Leopards, crossing the finish line at 27:01.77.

The squad averaged a time of 26:35, a significant improvement from last year's average of 27:22. 

Kyle Regret finished close behind Reyes, coming in at 27:16.48. 

Aidan Garcia (27:20.08) and Luke Garcia (30:09.46) closed out the race for La Verne.

Next Race

After a week off, the Leopards will travel to Kentucky to compete at Pre-National. The race will be held on October 5 in Tom Sawyer Park, Louisville, KY.
