Stanziano and Chung Earn SMC Student-Athletes of the Week

MORAGA, Calif. – Cross country athletes Rayna Stanziano and Lucas Chung earned Saint Mary's Co-Student-Athletes of the Week after qualifying for the Pan Am Cross Country Championships. No Gael had ever qualified for the race before Chung and Stanziano and they were both the first Gaels to attempt the qualifying race since 2016.

History was made on Saturday as freshman cross country runners Stanziano and Chung qualified for the 2020 Pan Am Cross Country Championships. Running in the U20 USATF Cross Country National Championships in Mission Bay, both needed to finish inside the top-six in order to represent the United States at the end of February.
