Cross Country Head Coach Felipe Montoro said his team’s performance this weekend at the Bronco Invitational was by far the best of the year.
On the men’s side, Kevin Oliver was the main standout. He finished 18th overall with a time of 24:30.9 in the 8K run.
On the women’s side, Mary Kriege was the top runner finishing ninth with a time of 17:29.7 in the 5K run.
The men’s team ran without All West Coast Conference runner Ben Demaree but still managed to finish 13th. The women also ran well as a whole, finishing ninth.
“On the men’s side, that was Luca’s (Signore) best performance in a Bronco uniform to date,” said Montoro in an interview with Santa Clara Broncos athletics online, referencing Signore’s 26th place finish. “Kevin (Oliver) and Bryan (Crook, 58th) both ran personal bests and obviously that was huge.”
He was especially pleased with the women.
“The women ran great. They really executed the race plan and did extremely well,” said Montoro. “Mary (Kriege) ran great. Emily (Robinson) had a breakout race, everyone really ran well.”
Montoro was sure to thank the team’s supporters for helping put on the event.
“I want to thank all the alumni, parents and friends of the program who lended a hand,” he said.
