SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The University of San Diego cross country team continues competition on the road as they travel to the 38th Stanford Cross Country Invitational on Saturday, September 24th, where they will have the opportunity to compete against WCC competition before facing them in the WCC Championship at the end of October. The Stanford Invite stands as one of the top cross country meets of the season with over 25 collegiate teams competing, showcasing some of the top individuals and teams throughout the country.

“I am thrilled to give our athletes an opportunity to race at this historical meet. It will provide our athletes with the test to run and get to know the site of the NCAA Western Regional,” said head coach Will Guarino. “This will identify those things that we need to work on as the championship segment approaches. It will also allow us to see some of our WCC competition.”

The Toreros come off a momentum-building performance in the UC Riverside Cross Country Invitational this past Saturday, where junior John Cutter and Junior Kristy Koenes made their mark by breaking into the Torero record books with their standout course times. Cutter achieved the second best time in USD history on this course with a 25:33.9 8k time, while Koenes broke a six year standing USD cross country record with her 21:36.1 6k performance. The women’s cross country  top 8 also made the all time list at this stage of the season on the same race with six of eight running personal bests.

The Toreros kick things off at the Stanford Invite at 10:50 a.m. with the men’s 8k race, followed by the women’s 6k race at 11:30 a.m. All races will take place at the Stanford Golf Course, which consists of mostly short grass, allowing less resistance and an opportunity for fast times. The Toreros will be treated to yet another ideal racing environment for the weather will begin around 60 degrees for the men while the temperature will climb a bit higher to the high 60’s for the women.
