Congrats To Alaniz For Great State Meet Finish

Nov. 21, 2007

Freshman Veronica Alaniz (South Gate HS) never envisioned becoming LA City’s top runner this season but it happened and her 41st place finish in the California Community College State Cross Country Championships last Saturday at Woodward Park, in Fresno, capped her successful first year at LA City.

Alaniz completed the winding 5K circuit with a career and season best time of 19:52. Orange Coast College’s Crystal Reed captured individual honors with a time of 17:32 in a field of 166 women competitors. Glendale College captured the State team championship.

“Veronica ran exceptionally well which was an appropriate way to complete her first season as a Lady Cub,” said LA City head coach Sylvia Mosqueda. “It was a great race to watch.”
