The Mission Harriers will venture to Chico State for the Wildcat Invitational on Saturday evening.
After the impressive set of PR's run at Long Beach, the women will all be together in the 3000 meters. This will be the first time that Robin Bell, Milena Basile, and Katie Hansen will run the event. Chrissie Moreno PR'd at 11:17 two weeks earlier at the Stanislaus Invitational. Earlier in the evening, Robin Bell will chase the five minute barrier in the 1500 meters. Robin was one hundredth of a second off five minutes at the Stanislaus Invitational.
The men will focus on the 5000 meters. Michael Helms and Ricky Brackett have been hampered with knee injuries and Ben Gauen has fallen off the training pace of Thomas Chapman. All four hope to regroup from their training and will be aiming to break 15 minutes. Kevin Edwards, Dominic Ricci, Chris Spicer, Toby Lopez, and Dominick Guidera round out the Broncos in the 5K. Stephen Moore and Michael Wall will aim to set PR's in the 1500m and Stephen will double back in the 800.
