Eric Peterson's women's cross country team finished first out of 10 teams at the Cal State Fullerton Titan Open on Friday, scoring 52 points. UCLA was led by junior Lori Mann who finished sixth in a time of 18:14.7. Also competing were Leslie Barrie, Elizabeth haigh, Ashley Allen, Alice Bohannon and Jenny Esser.
"We ran these six athletes with the idea that our leader would take the sixth and final spot on the roster for our squad at the Pac-10 meet, and that will be Lori Mann," said Peterson.
"It was a great team effort from Lori, Leslie, and Emily. They were all competing for a top-five placement throughout the race. It was nice to get our first team victory of the season."
"We now turn our focus to the Pac-10 meet and we are excited about the upcoming post-season."
The Bruins will head to San Francisco and Golden Gate Park on Oct. 30 for the Pac-10 Championships.
