HONOLULU– The University of Hawai’i cross country team is back in action this Saturday with the squad’s first road trip of the season to Riverside, California, for the UC Riverside Invitational.
“This will be a good early season test for the Bows and an opportunity to preview the Big West Championships course,” said head coach Tim Boyce. “We’re training well, and this trip continues that process of preparing for late October and November.”
The Rainbow Wahine are off to a strong start following a one-two-three finish in the Big Wave Invitational on Sept. 4, resulting in a first-place finish for the team. Senior Caelan Miller set the pace in the 5k race with a mark of 19:00.3 for her first career first-place finish. Senior Sophia Morgan and freshman Keilah Wilkes followed suit with their second and third-place finishes.
