(San Francisco) - USF Cross Country raced in its final event prior to the 2006 West Coast Conference Championship Saturday at the Ninth Annual Shoreline Open at Shoreline Park in Mountain View. Junior Katie Matl and Micael Smith turned in strong performances for the Dons, who did not field a complete team in the men's or women's race.
Matl was the top finisher on the women's side, finishing the 5K course at 19:09, good for 26th place, while Alice Hobbs was 37th at 19:44, just a fraction in front of Christine Jowaiszas, also timed at 19:44 in 38th place.
USF will spend the next week preparing for the WCC Championships Saturday, October 28 at the Crystal Springs Course in Belmont.
