Eduardo Urbina (second from right) is PCC’s qualifier for the 2017 CCCAA State Championships.

Pasadena City College men’s cross country team leader Eduardo Urbina placed 70th overall out of 196 runners at the Southern Calfiornia Championships held November 3 at Santa Clarita’s Central Park as he qualified as an individual for the CCCAA State meet.

The sophomore Urbina’s time of 22:42.2 was far and away the best mark of Lancers runners over the 4-mile course as the team closed out the ’17 season with a 22nd place finish out of 28 scoring teams at SoCal.

Felipe Loera placed 96th (23:09.3) and Dylan Che 97th (23:09.6) to follow Urbina. Also for PCC, Trevor Abe finished in 132nd (23:55.4), then Keyvan Duran in 157th (24:49.6), Antonio Alvarez in 160th (24:59.7), and Alexis Arevalo in 167th (25:10.4).

Since 2009, the PCC men’s program has only advanced as a team to the state meet twice–last year’s 27th place under current second-year head coach Innocent Egbunike, and a 22nd place showing in 2012.

Urbina will run at the state meet held annually at Fresno’s Woodward Park on Saturday, Nov. 18.
