Washington junior Haley Herberg led wire to wire to win the Pac-12 cross-country championships Friday at Chambers Creek Park in University Place.
Herberg, who jumped out to an early lead, finished the 6-kilomter race in 19 minutes 2.05 seconds, beating Stanford Ella Donaghu, who was second last year, by seven seconds.
“The plan was to be aggressive from the start and get a good position,” Herberg said. “But I was envisioning top-five or so, so to be in the lead wasn’t exactly the plan, but I went with it.”
Colorado’s Eduardo Herrera won the men’s title, winning the 8K race in 22:30.9.
Stanford swept the team titles. The Washington men were second and the women finished third. Issac Green was the top UW men’s finisher at seventh (23:00.0).
