San Diego excited for WCC Championship in Belmont, California
Oct. 28, 2009
The University of San Diego cross country team travels this weekend to the Bay Area for the West Coast Conference Championship. USD has been racing well coming off a top-5 finish for both the men and women at the Titan Classic in Fullerton California.
"The coaching staff feels like we have one of the strongest teams this year in terms of depth," said head coach Will Guarino.
On the men's squad, the Toreros are looking to race sophomore Shane Smith, junior Kevin O'Malley, freshman Chris Flaherty, freshman John Cutter, freshman Erik Anderson, freshman Justin Haley, and freshman AJ Agrawal.
The Torero men have been racing constantly throughout the season. San Diego has recorded three Top-10 finishes this season and two top-five finish towards the end of the regular race season. They had a team high of third place at the Titan Classic this past weekend, a great finish for the team heading into conference.
On the women's side, San Diego's line-up includes sophomore Jenessa Rose, freshman Kristy Koenes, freshman Emerald Raney, freshman Sam Espindola, freshman Mackenzie Entrikin, freshman Rachel Williams, and sophomore Kirsten Allan.
The women's team consistently grew stronger as the weeks passed this season. The women recorded three solid top-10 finish and two top-five finishes. The squad finished with a team high of fourth place at the Titan Classic last week, a real boost for the group headed to the bay area for the WCC Championship.
"I think that the West Coast Conference has risen in strength and is catching up to the Pac-10 which is really exciting for the teams of the WCC."
San Diego begins to wrap up their season with the WCC Championship race on Saturday, October 31 at the Crystal Springs Course in Belmont, California. The race schedule and results are available on the WCC Cross Country Tournament Page . The men's 8k race is scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m. followed by a 9:45 a.m. start for the women's 6k race.
"I feel very fortunate because we have a very young team that includes a group of men and women that not only want to race together but develop together and as a coach that makes me realize we're building our program in the right direction," said Guarino.
