WALNUT - Over the years, the Mount San Antonio College Cross-Country Invitational has served as a midway point or litmus test for teams heading into league championships and eventually the CIF Southern Section postseason. While several local teams made strong appearances Friday afternoon, not one, figuratively or physically, could touch the Flintridge Prep boys' cross-country squad. The Rebels entered the 65th Mt.

Erik Boal WALNUT -- Anita Siraki had not lost in 10 races entering Saturday's Foot Locker West Regional Cross-Country Championships at Mount San Antonio College. Actually no one had come within 30 seconds of the Hoover High senior. Not at the Stanford Invitational, nor the Woodbridge Invitational, nor the Mt. SAC Invitational, nor any of the CIF Southern Section or state meets. Only her close friend, Sara Bei of Santa Rosa Montgomery High, managed to post a time even remotely close to the 17-year-old, and that was a 14-second differential at the state meet, but in a different division.

SAC Invitational, a meet that drew high school athletes from across the country to race on the challenging three-mile course. Featuring two steep hills and a set of switchbacks, the Mt.

Molly Mercer's softball career started way back in 1987 when she first began playing with the Crescenta Valley Little League. Her Little League softball team won the 1999 State Championship, setting her up for future sporting success. Since then, her talent and skills have only grown, the latest accomplishment being her junior college team earning the 2007 California State Community College Championship. Mercer pitched for the Mt. San Antonio Mounties beginning last season and finishing her time there with an Academic All-American distinction, as well as an MVP award for the 2007 Green and Gold tournament at Mt. SAC.
