October 14, 1994|JOHN ORTEGA

Mark Covert, the men's and women's cross-country and track coach at Antelope Valley College, and Bobby Thomas, a former standout runner at Glendale College, will be inducted into the Mt. San Antonio College cross-country hall of fame today.

Covert won the 1968 State cross-country title as a Valley College freshman and finished third in 1969. He also won the 1970 NCAA Division II cross-country title for Cal State Fullerton before finishing seventh in the 1972 U.S. Olympic trials in the marathon.

His coaching career started shortly thereafter at Glendale and under his tutelage, Thomas won the 1974 State small schools cross-country title at Mt. SAC with a course-record time of 19 minutes 19 seconds over the four-mile distance.

Thomas, a real-estate agent in Glendale, won the 1975 World Junior cross-country championships in Rabat, Morocco.
