“It was just an honor to even race with these guys,” Arthur said. “They did the hard work until I made a good pass on the third mile. But they did the hard work for me. They were leading the whole race. I just have so much respect for the guys behind me and I am just proud to be in the winner of this great county.”

Baxter, the defending state champion, set the pace for a dominating team performance from Simi Valley.

The Pioneers — ranked No. 1 in CIF-SS Division 2 — also took the fourth (Erika Barr, 18:15), fifth (Karla Vernola, 18:16), sixth (Sarah Riggs, 18:18) and ninth (Rachel Vinas, 18:42) spots for an overall score of 25.
