OAKLAND, CA -- The UCSC Women's Cross Country team competed against local bay area colleges this Friday at the Mills Invitational.  UCSC won the meet for the 3rd year in a row, lead by Freshmen Tamara Torlakson's 4th place finish in 20 minutes and 16 seconds.  Sophomore Olivia Vegh continues to make vast improvements this season as she was UCSC's second runner finishing in 7th, just 26 seconds behind Torlakson.

As a team, UCSC finished with 37 points, beating out  Division I St. Mary's College with 53 points and third place finishers Notre Dame de Namur (63 points).  The rest of the competition was filled out by NAIA schools in the Cal Pac conference.
