Araia covered the 8,000 meter long course in 23:31 on the Stanford Golf Course. He paced a squad that placed three runners in the top 10 for the 8,000 meters, scoring 42 points to Santa Barbara's 56 points. Stanford also captured individual and team wins in the men's 4,000 meters, the women's 4,000 meters and the women's 6,000 meter races.
