Our own Baby Jane, Cami Chapus, won the Division 4 California State Meet Championships this past Saturday at Woodward Park. Cami ran 17:45 over the rolling 5k course beating out Kat Delaney from Jserra High School who ran 17:48. For her efforts, Cami received an invitation to the Nike Cross Nationals in Portland next Saturday on December 4th.
We are so proud of Cami!

The Janes traveled down to Dana Point this past Thursday to run the 33rd Annual Dana Point Turkey Trot 10k on a cold and breezy morning. This race was the final race of the Southern California USATF Road Racing Grand Prix series for the year and it was a good one for the Janes. Barbara Parker won this prestigious and competitive race in a time of 34:07. But the competition was not far behind. The first three ladies were within 26 seconds of each other although after initially getting out fast, Barbara was never challenged running a relaxed first race of the season during a heavy training period. Kirsten Leetch was eighth (35:50) followed by Emily Field (12th, 37:01), Sarah Montez (13th, 37:19), Emily Mitchell (16th, 37:59) and Cambria Wu (18th, 38:28). The Janes swept the team competition of the race with no other team showing up to compete.
The 10k was also the Southern California USATF 10k Championships so Barbara won the open division while Kirsten won the master’s division.

This is the last race of the Southern California USATF Grand Prix Racing Series so team and individual points will be assessed there.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
