Eric Peterson's UCLA cross country teams opened the season Saturday at the CS Fullerton 'Season Opener' at Craig Regional Park in Fullerton. The Bruin women won the team title in the 5k race and the UCLA men, not competing in the men's team 8k standings, were individually paced by sophomore Mike Haddan, who placed eighth.
The Bruin women, running with three true freshmen, won the 5k team title with 105 points, ahead of second-place San Diego State (119) and third-place Cal Coast (136).
For the next 10 days, the Bruins will be in Mammoth Lakes for altitude training. The next major cross country event will be Saturday, Sept. 17 at the Sundodger Invitational in Seattle, WA.
