Slugs Finish 2nd at William Jessup
The UCSC Cross Country team raced their "B" squad in Rocklin over the weekend at the William Jessup Invitational, finishing a close second to Fresno Pacific. It was a small meet with just four schools competing, and for that reason the Slugs held some runners out. "We didn't race three of our top five," said Head Coach Adam Boothe, "They actually got more out of doing a long workout on the course beforehand."
The team will have this weekend off before traveling to Salem, Oregon for the Willamette Invitational on September 30th. The meet in Oregon is one of the largest and most competitive in the West, with several nationally ranked programs in the race. " We always race well in Salem." said Boothe, " Its a very fast course, and the girls look forward to this race every year."
