The Gunn girls came up with their best effort of the season at the most important time and captured the Central Coast Section Division I title in cross country on Saturday at Crystal Springs in Belmont. The Titans scored 39 points to hold off favored Carlmont, which was second with 42. Both teams will advance to the CIF State Meet in Fresno.

Had only the first three scorers counted, Carlmont would have won the team title with just 10 points. Gunn, however, won the title on the strength of its No. 4 runner (senior Rachel Wittenauer in 11th) and No. 5 finisher (junior Emma Dohner in 13th). Gunn junior Erin Robinson led the way with a second-place finish of 18:19 over the 2.95-mile course. Sophomore Kieran Gallagher was sixth in 18:45 and senior Claire O'Connell was seventh in 18:49. Carlmont's No. 4 and 5 runners finished 15th and 18th, respectively.
