After being given a reprieve to qualify for the Southern California Championships despite a last-place finish at the South Coast Conference Championships, PCC took 25th place out of 28 teams at the SoCal meet held Friday at Ontario's Guasti Regional Park. The season officially ended for the Lancers this race.

The Lancers also will not have an individual runner take part at the CCCAA State Championships for the first time since 2007. Freshman Brian Sacripanti, who was the team's top runner in five of their six meets, placed 101st overall as the fastest Lancer at 22:04. Sacripanti missed by four spots of qualifying for the state meet.

Racing in muddy, rainy conditions on the 4-mile course, sophomore Chris Le followed Sacripanti in 116th at 22:22.9. The rest of the Lancers in order were: Angus Leung, 129th, 22.48.5; Hamilton Ran, 166th, 23:53, Taylor Toyotome, 177th, 24:06, Robert Carbajal, 183rd, and Anthony Huerta, 190th.
