(San Diego, CA) Second place isn't too shabby but for the Mt. San Antonio College Women's Track and Field team, it wasn't good enough. Second place is where the Mounties sat through the prelims round of the California Community College Athletic Association Southern California Regional Championships, but by the end of finals competition on Friday, May 12, at San Diego Mesa College, they'd claimed first place with 196 points. That bested South Coast Conference champion Cerritos College, which came in second with 144 points, while host SD Mesa finished third with 72.
