Cross Country: SBCC’s Colijn Comes In 7th at WSC Championships

The women's team, however, ends three points shy of advancing to the regional.

Paige Colijn turned in her highest finish (seventh) and best time (20:19) on Tuesday in the WSC Championships at Waller Park, but the Santa Barbara City College women’s cross country team came up three points shy of advancing to the Southern Cal Regional.

Colijn advanced as an individual to the SoCal meet on Nov. 7 in Bakersfield, along with a pair of Vaquero men. Conner Mellon placed 26th in 23:01 in the 4-mile race with Matt Little taking 49th in 24:07.

SBCC’s women had only five runners because of illness and had to use all five scores. Glendale won with 22 points while the Vaqueros totaled 188, three shy of eighth-place Citrus. The top eight teams advanced to the regional.

Amber Siddiqi placed third for the SBCC women in 22:14, while Ivana Sanchez was 36th in 22:21.

Glendale also won the men’s race with 47 points, and Andrew Salg of L.A. Valley was the individual winner in 21:20. SBCC was 12th with 285.

“I was really happy with our three individual qualifiers,” first-year Vaquero coach Scott Fickerson said. “I thought the women (who usually have seven or eight runners) would make it as a team, but we came up a few points short.”

Dave Loveton is Santa Barbara City College‘s sports information specialist.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
