Fullerton, Calif. - Life Pacific Cross Country(XC) opened up their first season as a GSAC member at the Biola Invitational, held at Craig Regional Park in Fullerton, CA. In their second year of existence, LPC is looking to establish a winning culture for their program.
Blake Terry (SR/Modesto, CA), an accomplished basketball player at LPC, was able to show his athletic versatility as he competed in his first collegiate cross country meet. Blake proved that he is able to compete with other more seasoned cross country runners.
Savannah Goodell (FR/San Lorenzo, CA) also had an outstanding start to her collegiate career at LPC. Savannah finished Saturday's race by leading the Lady Warriors to the finish line.
Another highlight came after the conclusion of Elizabeth Yerkes (JR/San Diego, CA) race.
"Elizabeth has always worked hard and continues to lead our team and set a great example for the incoming freshman class. She is not only competitive, but is also a servant. I watched her finish her race, then get a cup of water and run back to a runner (not a teammate) in last place who was really struggling to finish. Elizabeth jogged alongside her, encouraging her, finally leading her to the finish line where she gave her the cup of water. She had so much joy on her face as if she had just won herself. That is who Elizabeth Yerkes is....a servant." Head Coach Richard Salgado.
