The Lady Cubs Track & Field team was back in action last Friday with distance running being their focus in the Occidental Distance Carnival hosted by Occidental College.

Freshman Veronica Alaniz led the Lady Cubs in the 1500 meters with a 20th place finish in a time of 5:23.24 minutes.

Alaniz also ran in the 5000 meters and finished 39th with a time of 20:01.64. Fellow freshman Rosa Altomstone joined her in the 5000 meters and finished 56th at 22:02.30.

Head coach Sylvia Mosqueda expects Alaniz and Altomstone to do well in the 5000 meters this weekend in the California Relays at Cerritos College. Mosqueda is also expecting to introduce the Lady Cubs “sprint” unit with freshman Latrice Klyce (Leuzinger) entered in the 100 meter and 200 meter sprints. Freshman Yazmeen Townsend is expected to debut in the 100 meter dash.
