Zitlalic Ley won WSC titles in two different events, coming in first in both the 10,000 meters and the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Vivien Wadeck won WSC titles in the 1,500 meters and the 5,000 meters. Along with Ley and Wadeck, numerous others qualified for the Southern California prelims on Saturday at Bakersfield College.

On the men’s side the only WSC title winner was Mike Flowers who won the 3,000 meter steeplechase. Flowers as well as other members of the team will also be competing in the Southern California prelims.

The softball team completed their regular season behind a strong season from Kelly Korras who was named WSC pitcher of the year with a record of 17-15 and an ERA of 1.26.
Diana Garcia, the leading hitter for the Lady Vaqs, was named first team All-WSC with a .376 average. Debbie Martin and Melissa Legaspi were both Honorable Mention.
