Cross Country Runner Qualifies for Indoor National Championship

Marymount Cross Country runner Mike Guizar, from Torrance, CA, continues to make history at Marymount College.  Last November, Guizar qualified to compete in the NAIA National Cross Country Championships.  This spring as a member of Marymount's first ever track team, Guizar has qualified for the NAIA Indoor National Champions to be held in Geneva, OH from February 28 thru March 2, 2013.  Mike Guizar, who attended South Torrance High School and El Camino Junior College, has qualified to compete in the 1000 meter run with his performance at the Pomona-Pitzer All Comers meet on 2/16/2012 with a time of 2:32.55.  "Mike has worked extremely hard to acheive this accomplishment" states coach Matin Gonzalez. Athletic Director Gary White states, "the excitement continues to grow at Marymount within our Athletic Department and to have athletes in two new programs qualify for the National Championships is very exciting." 

We congratulate and wish Mike the best of luck! Go Mariners!
