USF women’s cross country cracks top 10 in nation

The University of San Francisco women’s cross country team cracked the top 10 of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches of America poll for the second time in program history recently.

The Dons earned the distinction by finishing third in the NCA West Region Championships. Led by Charlotte Taylor, who finished second, which — along with the team finish — is a program best.

USF will race in the NCAA National Championships on Saturday in Indiana as one of 31 teams competing for a championship.

Kyle Smith won his first game as head coach of the Dons’ men’s basketball team.

They beat Illinois-Chicago, 82-80, with Ronnie Boyce scoring a career-high 29 points. Nate Renfro chipped in another 12 and Chase Foster grabbed 11 rebounds.

USF plays UC Santa Barbara today before returning to War Memorial Stadium to play Troy State on Nov. 23.

The USF women’s team beat Sacramento State, 91-80, to give head coach Molly Goodenbour her first win as head coach of the Dons.
