The No. 5 nationally-ranked Stanford women’s team continued its dominance over their league rivals after placing three finishers in the Top-5 and four in the Top-10 en route to tallying 30 points for the victory in the chilly, windy, and rainy conditions.

Ella Donaghu (19:09), Zofia Dudek (19:14), and Julia Heymach (19:21) finished second, third and fourth to lead the way for the Cardinal who were claiming their 17th all-time title and second straight Pac-12 Cross Country Championships crown.

Like the women, the Cardinal also ran well in a pack after placing all five scorers inside the Top 10 and scored an impressive 26 points. Friday’s points total tied for the sixth-fewest in Pac-12 meeting history and are the lowest since Stanford scored 25 points to pick up the 2010 crown.

Charles Hicks led the way for Standford with a second-place finish in the men’s 8k, posting 22:41, while Cole Sprout ran 22:57 for fourth and Alek Parsons (22:59) for fifth.
