Colleen McCandless - Varsity Lg School winner

Interview with Granada senior Colleen McCandless after she won the Varsity Girls Large School Division race on Friday at the Rough Rider Invitational held at Woodward Park in Fresno. McCandless' time of 18:09.1 is very similar to the times she ran on the 5K Woodward Park course as a junior at both the Clovis Invitational (18:06.00 PR) and at the CIF-State Championships (18:06.10), where she placed 8th in Division II. McCandless, the defending North Coast Section champion, also won last week at Crystal Springs, her first two victories of the season. Earlier this season, McCandless placed 7th at the Woodbridge Invitational, running the blazing fast 3-mile course in a 16:24.30 PR, a time that ranks No. 6 in CA and No. 8 in the U.S.
