Led by Erica Schroeder's sizzling winning time and five runners finishing in the top 8, the San Marcos girls cross country team beat Ventura to win the Channel League title on Thursday at Camino Real Park in Ventura.

It's the first championship for the Royals in Lawrence Stehmeier's 17 years as head coach.

The San Marcos girls scored 25 points, Ventura had 47, Dos Pueblos 71, Buena 85 and Santa Barbara 140.

The San Marcos boys finished second behind Ventura, 38-40.  Buena edged Dos Pueblos for third, 78-79, and Santa Barbara (124) came in fifth.

The Royals' boys and girls teams advance to the CIF Prelims in Riverside next weekend.

Schroeder ran 17:21.90, the third-fastest time on the flat 3-mile course. Natalie McClure came in third in 17:48, freshman Madison Funk was sixth (18:21), Kaela Cleary seventh (18:26) and Mya Adornetto eighth (18:34).

The overall team time of 90:33 set a league record, breaking Ventura's record of 90:46 set in 2004. 

Logan Briner led the way for the San Marcos boys, finishing third in a personal best of 15:20.9. Jerry Swider also ran a PR of 15:30 to take fourth. He was followed by Jason Peterson (8th in 15:39.10), Philip Naumann (12th) and David Dinklage (13th).

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!
