The California Community College Cross Country Championship ended Nov. 17.

Cm April finished at 75th out of 204; Kristina Vasquez finished at 147th out of 204.

This is the first time Cm April participated in the CCCCCC. He’s the only one who has got SJCC the closest position to the championship since 2004.

Vasquez was also qualified for the state championship in 2011 and finished at 134th in 21 minutes 5 seconds.

In the past San Jose City College had more qualified runners for the state championships. This year, with only two runners, the college was not qualified for team race.

“I’m getting back to 10 miles a day before January, training for track,” April said.

He will represent SJCC in the Track and Field Coast conference in May and hopefully get qualified for the Track and Filed state championship. He said he will race in the 1500 meters, the 3000 meters steeplechase and the 5000 meters.

April is studying business and planning to go to CSU East Bay, Hayward in the next fall and “trying to run for cross country in Hayward.”
