Santa Clara's women were third at the Doc Adams Invitational on Saturday with 68 points at UC Davis. Meghan McNamara finished in fourth place for the Broncos. The Bronco cross country teams now turn their sites to the NCAA West Region Championship on Sat., Nov. 13 in Eugene, Ore.
"We are very pleased with their efforts as we closed out these runners cross country efforts for 2010. Meghan, Melissa, Moises and Gareth all ran PRs," said Bronco head coach Tom Service.
At the Doc Adams Invite, McNamara led the women's team with her time of 22:19, a big PR.
