CHINO, CA — Rachael Dela Cruz led the Leopards with a 15th place finish, Melissa Cerrillos finished in 20th place and the pair earned All-SCIAC honors Saturday morning at the 2018 SCIAC Cross Country Championships.

Dela Cruz crossed the finish line with a time of 24:34.3 and Cerrillos clocked in at 24:50.2.

From the Coach

"We came up short of our goal of top-five for both men and women. The meet is extremely competitive and it was going to take a perfect day for La Verne to reach those goals. They have worked extremely hard to prepare and so I believe we have more left in us for NCAA Regionals in two weeks," said Head Coach Justin Wood.

Ashley Garnica was the third finisher for La Verne, crossing the finish line at 26:52.8. Michelle Suarez and (27:17.8) and Reiko Fujimoto (27:43.6) rounded out the scoring for La Verne.

Next Race

The Leopards look to come back stronger in Walla Walla, Washington at Veterans Memorial Golf Course on Saturday, November 10 for the 2018 NCAA West Regionals.
