Lakeside, Calif.— Local early season meet saw San Diego schools kicking off the season at Lindo Lake Park in Lakeside, CA. Three Pacific Coast Athletic Conference schools, Cuyamaca, San Diego City and Grossmont were joined by San Diego Christian of the NAIA as both men and women ran a 5k course during a hot and dry morning. The course was packed as the College Meet took place amidst a 3 division 34 school 1500 runner high school invite.

First up were the women, Miriam Cardenas from NAIA, San Diego Christian took the lead from the beginning, with a pack of Cuyamaca women running 5th runner.  Cuyamaca’s pack stayed that way through 2 miles when 1st year coach, Anthony Garcia, let them race the last mile, and race they did, with Paige Hughes running under 5:50 for her last mile to pass Miriam with just 100 meters to go to finish up in 22:02. Grossmont College Arriana Runningwolf and Biviana Romero both were able to break up the Coyotes pack and place 6th and 7th respectively. But San Diego City responded with their top 7 all edging out Grossmont’s third runner.


The Men’s race saw two teams toe the line for the 5,000m race with additional unattached athletes adding to the mix.  Cuyamaca and San Diego Christian (NAIA) both had full teams competing today.  The lead pack of 5 went through the first mile in 5:04 with former Southwestern standout and currently attending Imperial Valley College (IVC), Leo Banales leading the way.  For the college athletes, it was Emmanual Corvera (Cuyamaca) with Lee McAllister (Cuyamaca) right on his heels.  The pack spread out as the race progressed with Greg Ponce, another unattached athlete, also attending IVC taking the win in the last few hundred meters.  Emmanuel finished up in 16:48 to lead Cuyamaca to their 2nd consecutive victory at the Cuyamaca Invite.

Cuyamaca will compete next at the Palomar Invitational Friday, September 7.
