The College of the Canyons cross country program continued its season by running at the annual Mark Covert Classic hosted by California State University, Fullerton on Saturday, Sept. 2.
Featuring a mixture of four-year school, community college and club teams, the event annually attracts a combined field of nearly 250 runners from across the region.
COC sophomore Díani Ellis ran to a 16th place finish on the 5K course with a team-leading time of 19:13.3.
That mark helped the COC women's team to an eighth place finish among the field of 13 non-Division 1 program competing at the event.
The COC men's team only entered four runners in the event, and thus did not qualify for team competition.
Canyons will next compete at the Fresno Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 9, at Woodward Park.
Stay up to date on all this season's action by following the College of the Canyons Athletic department on social media at @COCathletics on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
