The Latest On The Lady Cubs

Apr. 29, 2008

Freshman Veronica Alaniz finished 4th place in the South Coast Conference Championships in the 5000 Meters and 10,000 Meters. The Championship was hosted by Cerritos College last week. LA City finished 7th place overall in team competition.

Alaniz’s 4th place finish in the 23-entry field for the 5000 Meters was clocked at 19:12 minutes. She then encored in the 10,000 Meters with a 4th place showing of 41:42.58 minutes among the 14 entries.

Alaniz, who has been the Lady Cubs most consistent runner in 2008, qualified for this season’s Southern California Preliminaries that is being hosted at Bakersfield College on Saturday.

“It was extremely difficult to achieve what she did,’’ said LA City coach Sylvia Mosqueda. “She has been a front runner most of the season but has been improving throughout. I’m very proud of her and I wouldn’t be surprised if she next qualifies for the State Finals.”
