Cross Country 800m Record Broken

March 14, 2007

LA JOLLA, Calif. - Sophomore Chris Jacobs (Vista, CA) continued his running success as a Torero by breaking the school 800m record this past Saturday at the City Championships with a time of 1:58.58.

Jacobs placed third overall in the San Diego City Championships behind UCSD and Cal State San Marcos.

"It was great to see Chris challenge the pack on the opening of the 2nd lap," said head coach Will GGuarino. "He was pushed down the backstretch by a group of excellent kickers."

With his new time, he broke his own record set last year of 1:59.89.

The Toreros continue their off season training around Southern California in preparation for the 2007 race season.
