Complete Men's Team Results

BELMONT, Calif. - The University of San Diego cross country team wrapped up their regular season with a 7th place finish for the women's team while the men's team finished in 8th place on Saturday morning at the Crystal Springs Cross Country Course.

"It wasn't our best race and I know our team has a lot more potential," said head coach Will Guarino.

The men's team had a eighth place finish in the race. The Toreros scored 192 points, just one point shy of tying seventh place Portland and six points from sixth place.

USD junior Kevin O'Malley was the first Torero to cross the finish line (27th overall, 26:14) followed by freshman teammate Chris Flaherty (35th overall, 26:34) and freshman Erik Anderson (40th overall, 26:44). Rounding out the top five finishers for USD was freshman John Cutter (42nd overall, 26:55) and sophomore Shane Smith (48th, 27:22).

The women's squad struggled toward the end of the course as they were on pace for a fifth place finish. However one of their top runners had to slow up due to the difficulty of the course.

Junior Samantha Espindola finished first for the Toreros (21st overall, 22:38) followed by freshman teammate Emerald Raney (23rd overall, 22:42) and Jenessa Rose finishing third for the Toreros (28th overall, 22:50). Rounding out the top five for USD was freshman Rachel Williams (38th overall, 23:18) and sophomore Kirsten Allan (39th overall, 23:20).



"It was a difficult race for our women's squad today," said Guarino. "I was confident our women's team would finish better than they did." The Toreros have two weeks to prepare for the NCAA Western Regional race which will be in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday, November 14.
