Tritons Resume Season at UC Irvine Invitational this Saturday
LA JOLLA, Calif. – The UC San Diego men’s and women’s cross country squads continue their seasons this weekend at the UC Irvine Invitational on Saturday at the Central Park Cross Country Course in Huntington Beach, Calif. The Tritons will be one of at least 15 teams to compete in both the men’s five mile race and the women’s 5k event.
The UCSD men are coming off an impressive performance in its season opener last week, defeating Point Loma Nazarene in a dual meet event at home last Friday. The Tritons finished the four mile race with 20 points after individuals finished first, second, fourth, fifth and eighth; despite holding out seven upper classmen from the race.
The UCSD women enter the weekend fresh off a No. 5 national ranking that was released on Tuesday night by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Like the men, the Triton women finished first last week in their dual meet with PLNU. Head coach Ted Van Arsdale’s squad posted 26 points at the meet with individual finishes of third, fourth, fifth, sixth and eighth.
