In the photo above by Patrick Corsinita, Riverside North freshman Mackenzie Browne (right) closes out what will be the fastest time -- 17:08.9 -- among all girls races over two days of the Southern Section Prelims last weekend on the 3-mile Riverside Championship Course last weekend.
Trailing Browne in the background with the next fastest times of the meet are Serrano sophomore Tiani Goeson, junior Makayla Browne, and Capistrano Valley senior Carly Corsinita.
While last week served as a qualifying meet for this Saturday's CIF-SS Championships, this week's racing is for coveted Southern Section division titles and State Meet berths.
