COSTA MESA, Calif. – The Master’s College men’s cross country team, who ranks 17th in the NAIA, placed third out of 14 teams at the Vanguard Invitational on Saturday morning, and were the top team finishers from the Golden State Athletic Conference.
John Hurd (Fairview, PA) placed 11th with a time of 25 minutes and 43 seconds for the 8,000 meter course. Tyler Tockstein (Canyon Country, CA) was second for the Mustangs with a time of 26:07, followed by the duo of Matthew Crichton (Mission Viejo, CA) and Michael Sciarra (Orange, CA) with times of 26:17 and 26:19.
“Tyler filled a crucial number two spot for the team and created only a forty second gap between our number one and five which we need,” stated head coach Zach Schroeder.
The Mustangs get their next challenge when they compete at the West Coast Jamboree hosted by Biola in two weeks on Saturday, October 26.
