On Pace for Another Big Year
The Tigers Cross Country team is wrapping up another strong season. They recently came off of a strong showing at the Doc Adams Open in Davis, CA and look towards the offseason to help build upon their success.
The Pacific cross country team posted another strong showing this season as they ran in the UC Riverside Invitational on Saturday morning at the UCR Agriculture Operations Course. Pacific completed against 28 other collegiate teams, including West Coast Conference foe Loyola Marymount.
Jasmine Gonzales once again paced the Tigers across the finish line, traversing the 6K course in a time of 21:49.4, which is a hair off her personal best of 21:49.2. Freshman Saira Purhar followed with a time of 22:26.4, and next came Emma Winkler with a mark of 22:34.7. Emily Wylie ran an even 23:00.0, and Katelyn Breitschwerdt (23:45.8) and Haley Silva (24:20.7) rounded out the Tiger squad.
