Another strong performance came from the girls 4 x 800 meter relay as they set the school record with a time of 10:09.94. "We have never put together a 4 x 800 meter relay and Stanford always has great competition so it was the perfect race to give it a try," Coach Small said. "The freshman stepped up nicely and they all went after it. I am very pleased with the result."
The lady Warriors battled top competition from Northern California and saw some outstanding individual runs. The lead-off leg of Morgan Lira had a quick start and held on to run a first leg split of 2:27. A pair of freshman were next up as Karen Mac (2:37) and Jessica Xu (2:34) split just under their season best while Emily Blaha made up ground on the competition anchoring the team with a 2:30 split.
"It was a lot of fun but seemed really short," Emily Blaha said. "Now they have something to try and beat next year!"
