SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - UC Santa Barbara senior Dani Moreno easily cruised to a first-place finish in the women's race at the annual Lagoon Run on Saturday, clocking a 17:21.91 over the 5k course to finish nearly 30 second ahead of teammate Maxine Goyette, but Cal Poly's depth was too much as the Mustangs won the Blue-Gree Rivalry dual meet, 25-34.

Goyette, a junior, was second in a time of 17:51.25, but the next five places were all Cal Poly runners. Mary Jo Wright (17:56.91), Melissa Eisele (18:02.74), Meghan Breadmore (18:10.85), Ashley Windsor (18:11.87) and Molly Harr (18:12.76) finished third through seventh respectively.

UCSB's Sarah Shreck was eighth in 18:13.48, while Bailey Miller was 12th (18:39.33) and Jenna Hinkle finished 15th (18:51.49). 

The Gauchos are off for a week and will do their annual altitude training. They return to competition on Sept. 13 when they travel to the UC Riverside Invitational.
