Gunn grad Tyler wins women's division of San Francisco marathon


Gunn High grad Tori Tyler added another championship to her resume, 11 years after her high school graduation, by being the first woman across the finish line of the San Francisco Marathon, in 2:49.51, on Sunday.

Tyler, the Pac-12 Cross Country Newcomer of the Year and a second team all-conference pick in 2005, was a state champion in the 3,200 meters (10:38) in 2005. She was third in the state cross country meet in the fall of 2004.

Tyler, who ran the Boston Marathon in 2:54.31 two years ago, remains among California's top 5,000-meter runner based on the 16:50.05 she recorded at the USATF Junior Nationals in 2005.
