The Distance Queen and other Santa Clara bests in cross-country
Oh, the races they’ve run: In April, at the San Francisco State Distance Carnival, Grayson Murphy ’18 became the first female Bronco ever to break the 11-minute mark in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, coming in at 10:44.71. (In May, she bested that by three seconds.) Breaking another Bronco record at the April meet: Mary Kreige ’16, who shattered the 17-minute mark in the 5,000m. Cut to Los Angeles, later in April: Kreige ran a school best in the 10k; add that to SCU titles in the 3k and 5k. Call her the Distance Queen. For the men, this season Joey Berriatua ’17 set a school record for the 1,500m run, at 3:49.35. And he was part of a team that in February set a new Bronco record for the distance medley relay. Also carrying the baton: Nicholas Mantovani ’16, bioengineering grad student Kurt Ruegg M.S. ’16, and Adam Vare ’18.
