Piner's Luis Luna finishes a perfect 4 for 4, having won the Freshman, Soph, Junior and now Senior race over the past four years. His 14:44 time is a new meet record and probable course record at Shadow Cliffs. On the day, the Piner boys are strong, grabbing numerous "top ten" Scott Bauhs t-shirts (handed out by Scott's Mom as the meet's namesake is overseas training).
In the days last race, Nicole Lane of El Molino runs the fastest girls time of the day, breaking the 18 minute barrier in a blazing 17:49 mark to edge SRV's Christine Bayless who ran earlier in the day.
