For the second time in program history, the San Francisco State men’s cross country team featured a pair of runners to earn All-West Region honors.
Seniors Benji Preciado and Kenny Trejo nabbed the distinction at last weekend’s NCAA Division II West Region Championship, in which Preciado finished 13th and Trejo 16th.
As a team, the Gators finished in eighth place, which eliminates them from competing in the national race.
Adrian Calva was named to the All-West Region team by taking 14th, which is the highest individual finish for an SFSU athlete since 2002. Her time of 21:49.35 represents the third fastest time in a 6K race in school history.
The Gators’ traditionally solid wrestling team participated in the 49th Annual SFSU College Open on Saturday.
Mitchell Owens came in second in the 184-pound weight class while Mike Marshal (184), Thomas Turcol (149) and Landon Myers (157) each took a spot on the podium as third-place finishers.
In a dual meet, the Gators lost to both Cal Poly and Indiana.
The San Francisco State Tip-Off Classic will serve as the men’s basketball team’s official tip off to the 2016-17 season this weekend.
The Gators will host the Academy of Art, Stanislaus State and Dominican University in the Don Nasser Family Plaza over Friday and Saturday.
