After a successful showing at the Occidental College Distance Classic, the men’s and women’s track and field were back in action on Friday competing at the 2019 Riverside Community College Open.
The Olympians competed against Mt. San Antonio College, El Camino College, Cuesta College, and Cuyamaca College. “This was a very important meet for our program as we head towards the middle part of our schedule,” states head coach Sean Ricketts. “Not only did we get a chance to work on our race strategy, but it also allowed us to get familiar with the venue, which is important because Riverside Community College is where the 2019 Southern California Regionals and Finals will be held.”
