Women's Cross Country Overview

2013 Season Highlights

  • 2nd Big 8 Conference
  • 2nd NorCal Championships

SRJC Women's Cross Country had a strong start to the season, pulling in a pair of individual and team first place finishes at College of the Redwoods and Modesto. They continued the good form running in a tough race against four-year universities including Sonoma State and Humboldt State. The next three races saw them pull it together and win against some of the toughest teams in the north at the NorCal Preview Meet, The Toro Park Invitational, and the Pat Ryan Invitational.

This momentum propelled the team into its best post-season in school history where they finished second in both the Big 8 Conference Championship and the NorCal Regional Championship Meets. These results helped them qualify for the State Meet for the third year in a row.

2014 Season Preview

SRJC Women's Cross Country looks to continue its form for the next season. New local talent including Santa Rosa High School's Trixie Scolari and Irman Olvera, Rancho Cotate's Erica Ruiz, and Montgomery's Leila Nacouzi will join a number of talented incoming freshmen that will help to bolster a team that will see only one returner.

Program History

Santa Rosa Junior College Women's Cross Country is a team on the rise. With a new coaching staff, a new look, and a new crop of local talent, SRJC Women's Cross Country looks to put its mark on CCCAA distance running.

Led by coaches David Wellman and Mike Wortman, the Bear Cubs are beginning to return to the quality program they once had following a breakout season that saw the Bear Cubs take second in both the Big 8 Conference Championships and the NorCal Regional Championships.

Our number one goal here at SRJC is to develop the student-athletes academically and physically so that they are able to transfer to a four-year university that allows them to flourish as a student and an athlete. We do this giving our athletes the one-on-one attention that young runners need to develop into top tier college athletes. With this individualized focus, our athletes grow to be strong and consistent runners. SRJC cross country competes in the Big 8 Conference. This is arguably one of the most competitive conferences in the CCCAA system.

This year SRJC Cross Country will compete against a number of community colleges from the north as well as a few four-year universities. We will be striving to continue to build on our record of qualifying a full team to the CCCAA State Championships. The SRJC Women's Cross Country Team has qualified for state three years in a row.
