Last Saturday, the Bruin women ran in the Stanford Invitational. In the team standings, UCLA placed third (70 points), behind first-place Stanford (21) and second-place SMU (63 points). Over the 4000m Stanford Golf Course, the Bruins had two runners in the Top 10 - Costello (6th, 14:01) and Timinsky (10th, 14:11) and three additional runners in the Top 21 - Caldwell (14th, 14:28), Rothenburger (19th, 14:35) and Hall (21st, 14:42).

"We are looking forward to the upcoming Notre Dame Invitational," said Peterson, in his 11th year coaching the Bruin women. "We have a young team and in the weeks ahead, as the distances on the courses increase and as our young runners gain more experience, our team is going to continue to improve and will be a nationally-competitive squad."
