The Chico State cross country team had a dominant performance Oct. 8 at the Triton Invitational with both men’s and women’s finishing in the top three.

Men’s cross country

The men’s team had five of the top 10 runners cross the finish line, and had a commanding first place win. Junior Connor Fisher finished second for the ‘Cats and third in the tournament.

Senior Aaron Mora was the last Wildcat to crack the top five with a fifth-place finish. Senior Kyle Medina and sophomore Arturo Arevalo finished within a minute of Mora and earned a sixth and seventh place.

Chico State has won three consecutive tournaments this season and has relied on Reyes to lead the team in each event.
