Cal Poly Sweeps Cross Country Championship
Cal Poly captured both the men’s and women’s Big West Cross Country Championship, which took place at the UC Riverside Ag/Ops Course for the fifth consecutive year. The men’s team collected its second straight title and 12th in the past 15 seasons while the women’s program nabbed its first conference crown since 2001.
The Mustang trio of Chris Frias, Blake Ahrold and Mitchell Moriarty finished one-two-three at this year’s 8K event. Cal Poly's Laura Hollander ran a top time of 19:12.6, shattering both the course and conference record by forty-five seconds and becoming just the second female athlete to post a sub 20-minute time in the 6K since the championship moved to the new distance in 2003.
