Davis, Calif. - A week before the NCAA West Region meet, Stanford sent a small contingent of runners to the Doc Adams Invitational, hosted by UC Davis. The Cardinal won the men's competition, while the women did not have enough runners to score.
The Stanford men scored 21 points, led by Kevin Havel. Havel placed sixth overall, covering the 8,000-meter course in 24:38. Also in the top-10 for the Stanford men was Tyler Valdes who placed seventh with a time of 24:39.
The Cardinal women did not have a team score with just four runners competing, but did have a pair finish in the top five. Tate Murray led the Cardinal with her third-place finish and a 6,000-meter time of 21:38. Kristin Reese was right behind, finishing fourth with a time of 21:51.
The Cardinal also had several redshirts running for both the men and the women, but because they are unattached they did not count towards the team score.
Stanford will be back in action with its full teams at next Saturday's NCAA West Regional in Eugene, Ore. The No. 2 men and No. 4 women will be looking to claim the region title, but more importantly secure its trip to the NCAA Championships.
