Stanford Report

It was a beautiful day for a race on the Stanford Golf course today with both temperatures and race times favorable to us with the exception of having to be up so early and on the road for 2 1/2 hours. Overall UM walked away with new season PR's for everyone and all-time PR"s for almost everyone. The course was fast and the fields large with 38 teams (257 runners) competing in the varsity girls race that saw the ladies take 9th place overall. Today saw sophomore, Becky Glaister power her way to being the first Diamondback across the finish line just under the 20 minute mark with a 19:59 followed by junior, Allison Babbage at 20:08, sophomores, Michaela Yack at 20:09 and Isabella Ancona at 20:24. Folks that group of 4 ladies finished 25 seconds apart...they could have almost braided each others hair they were so close but not to leave without the rest of their team was freshman, Sierra Heinrichs who knocked over 2 minutes off her previous PR crossing at 22:26 or so close behind her was sophomore Breanna Winter at 22:30 and knocking almost 2 minutes off her previous PR was Ashley Bells at 23:12.

This was our first 5K (3.1 miles) distance for the season so with today's performance our girls are back into #2 spot for Division 4 schools in the Sac-Joaquin Section.

The boys also found the course to their liking with with new all-time PR's for almost all by knocking close to 1 to 2 minutes off previous PR's. Keeping his lead role was senior, Keis Verleur crossing the tape at 17:40, junior, Adam Benouar at 18:05 and sophomore, Brett Burink with 18:21. Senior, Aaron Jonas had over a 2 minute PR with a 19:27 and was followed by freshman, Matt Clark in his first varsity race breathing down his neck with a 19:29. Rounding out the team was Austin Cordero with a 19:33 and Scott Robinson at 22:22.

Up next will be our 2nd SVC league meet in Rancho Cordova on this Wednesday at Hagen Park behind Cordova High School. Full results can be seen from the Links section of our website by scrowling down to the Stanford Meet link and clicking on results and should fully be up on Athletic.net but for now I've manually entered them in.
