Another great race on the course but this time it's in the Varsity Girls' division as 3 of the top runners in California battled for the WCAL individual crown. In the end it was Valley Christian's Jennifer Bergman defeating her two St. Ignatius opponents (Katy Daly and Rachel Hinds) to record the fastest time on the course this year. Her time of 17:25 also makes her the 13th fastest high school girl to ever run the course! Daly also established a personal record by 5 seconds with her 17:42 effort while Hinds became the 6th fastest freshman on the course with her 17:56.
The St. Ignatius girls won the girl's competition with 44 edging Presentation at 53.
