Tiffany Costello placed fifth on Friday in the Southern Cal Preview women's cross country race at Central Park in Santa Clarita.

The freshman from Coto de Caza has finished first and fifth in her first two college cross country races. She ran 19:27 on the 5K course in a field of 210 runners. Angelica Salas of Glendale was the winner in 18:50.

SBCC's Christy Chavira took 33rd in 21:11 and Mia Casazza was 41st in 21:22 in her first college race.

"All three women ran smart controlled races," said Vaquero coach Scott Fickerson. "We got a good look at the course for November's Southern California Championship and all three raced in a way that could qualify them for State in November."

The Vaqueros will run in the WSC Preview on Friday, Sept. 29 at Bonelli Park in San Dimas.
