Alonso encored with a solid run in the 1500 meters in finishing 2nd place with a time of 4:52. Alaniz was 6th at 5:20.

“It was a good day for the Lady Cubs,” said head coach Sylvia Mosqueda. “These girls a very capable of going to the State meet and place well in the state championships. I even think that
Daniella could win a state championship and Veronica will be right behind her. Rosa and Izamar each have a legitimate chance in the 10,000 meters. I can hardly wait for the new campus track to be completed. We’ll be able to do some real damage to opposing teams in the sprints when we have that facility to practice in.”

Other teams that competed included Long Beach City, LA Southwest, Pasadena City, El Camino, LA Trade Tech, Mt. SAC, East LA, Compton College, and Cerritos.
