RCC Men’s cross-country team won second Place to Orange Coast College at the Orange Empire Conference Finals on Nov. 1 with a score of 62 points and a total time of 1:49:42.

The women’s team finished in third place, lead by Orange Coast in first and Fullerton in second. Their total time was 1:45:22. The rivalry between RCC and OCC has been ongoing, with RCC taking the top spot last year and OCC taking it this year.

From there the Tigers moved on to the SoCal cross-country championship, where the men finished 10th and the women finished in 19th. The Men’s team “qualified for the eighth straight year and ran a good race,” says RCC coach Jim McCarron.
