The Palo Alto girls ran second, as did Gunn junior Lisa Fawcett, to highlight local efforts in the Friday varsity race at the Monterey Bay Invitational cross-country meet at Toro Park in Salinas.
The three-mile course is the site of the Central Coast Section championships and served as a tuneup for the meet this weekend. Races were held both Friday and Saturday.
With senior teammate Allegra Mayer not competing, Fawcett took over the team leadership duties and clocked 19:16 for second place. Paly senior Elizabeth Scott finished fifth in 19:56.
Depth proved to be the difference for the Paly girls, who finished with 97 points for second behind Aptos. Sophomore Gracie Cain was 22nd overall, senior Gillian Lui was 23rd overall, junior Regina Wang was 27th and sophomore Susan Heinselman was 28th.
Gunn finished fourth in the team race with 100 points. Other Gunn scorers were Emma Dohner, Tara Saxena, Liza Marinaro and Joanne Reid.
