This level of competition both attracts university coaches and prepares you to compete at the highest level.

The Pacific Coast Athletic Conference has selected Southwestern College cross country runner Steven Lepe and Grossmont football player William Abt as its Men’s Athletes of the Week.

Lepe, a freshman from Monte Vista High School, led the Jaguars to the team title in the Rio Hondo College Invitational at Whittier Narrows in El Monte as he captured the race’s individual championship.

Lepe ran the 4.0-mile course in 20 minutes, 8 seconds, defeating a 75-runner field. Southwestern finished 1-2-3-4 in the race to outdistance runner-up Los Angeles Trade Tech by 31 points in team scoring 20-51.

Abt, the Griffins’ red-shirt freshman quarterback who transferred from the University of Houston, threw seven touchdown passes, all in the first half, as Grossmont opened its football season by routing College of the Desert 65-14.

The 6-foot, 3-inch, 215-pound Abt, a product of Northland Christian High School in Houston, staked Grossmont to a 47-0 halftime lead against the Roadrunners and came out of the game early in the third quarter.

He broke the Griffins’ single-game record of six TDs shared by four quarterbacks, including the late former Cal star Joe Roth.

For the game, Abt was 21-for-32 passing for 359 yards.
