George Martinez, who was conference Athlete of the Week for the week that ended Sept. 7 and thus was not eligible to repeat that honor during the current season, placed first among community college runners and 18th among non-Division I runners in the Stanford Invitational over an 8K course at Stanford University Golf Course.

Competing head-to-head against opponents from meet champion Washington State, runner-up UC Santa Barbara, third-place Stanford and top non-Division I finisher Chico State, Martinez’ 24:46 time was good enough to place him 57th overall. There were 39 teams and 362 runners in the race.
