Toreros Break Records at Highlander Invite
Oct. 14, 2017

Women's Results

Riverside, Calif. -- The University of San Diego competed at the annual Highlander Invitational this Saturday, despite their original plans for Homecoming weekend. While they were slated to compete in the Bronco Invitational in Santa Clara, aggressive fires in the area hindered their ability to do so.

Head coach, Will Guarino made a game time decision to divert their original plans to protect student athletes’ health. Says Guarino, “I’m proud of the team. They had to change race venues within 48 hours and the outlook that we had was purely about making it the best racing environment for our athletes to thrive in.”

Albeit the last-minute turn of events, the Toreros ran an impressive race. The USD men’s squad placed 8th overall with every single athlete running a personal best time and the women’s team finished 4th out of 15 teams with 15 women running personal best times.

Leading the pack for the Toreros were Liam Burke (18:20.5) for the men’s team and Hannah Rasmussen (17:41.9) for the women. Burke’s performance at the Highlander Invitational is now being recorded as USD Cross Country’s best 6km time for the men’s squad.

Head coach, Will Guarino showed enthusiasm for both teams’ performances. “It was exciting to see both the Men and Women run aggressive. It was important in order for us to prepare well for our championship season,” said Guarino.



Despite a difficult change in their plans, the Toreros handled the adversity with impressive grace. Senior Max Pedrotti summarized it best by saying “this adversity doesn’t compare to the people that have lost so much with the fires in Northern California."

The Toreros will head to the WCC Championship races on October 27 in Oakland, CA, conditions permitting.
