SAN FRANCISCO — Everywhere one looked Friday, the San Francisco State Distance Carvinal had races with ties back to Davis.

Nine former Davis High competitors and a host of UC Davis athletes blazed around the track in impressive fashion against runners from across the Pacific states.

Ex-Blue Devil Christine Bowlus, the 2009 Sac-Joaquin Section 3,200-meter champion, finished fourth in the 5,000 meters in 16:53.39. Running for Cal, Bowlus was behind winner Tessa Murray (16:39.76) of Boise State.

Another Golden Bear and past DHS star, Matt Peterson, was 17th in the 10,000-meter long haul. Winner Kevin Pool of SRA Elite Track Club won the event in a record 29:42.59.

Joining Bowlus in her race were Hilary Teaford (UCD) and Jonah Weeks (Chico State) — both teammates of Bowlus’ under DHS distance coach Bill Gregg. Teaford’s 17:38.39 was good for 31th with Weeks right behind at 17:40.80.

Santa Clara’s Ryan Greenough went 15:20.43 in the 5,000, followed by Gonzaga’s Braeden Van Deynze (15:26.67) and Drew Petersen (unattached) in 15:39.68. The former Blue Devil trio finished 71st, 77nd and 90th, respectively. Sacramento State’s Mac Harvey (another DHS alum) did not finish.

Miguel Aceves, the brilliant UCD freshman from Florin High, won the two-mile in 9:39.30.

Trevor Ehlenbach’s 1:51.58 was good for a second-place finish in the 800 with fellow Aggies Doug Wong (1:54.97) and Eric Holguin (1:59.13) in 16th and 38th places.

UCD sprinter Thompson Ly was ninth in both the 100 (11.73) and 200 (23.72), while teammates Kaio Sena (fourth at 50.38) and Jeremy Roland (11th at 52.77) were strong in the 400.

Jordan Rushing (3:56.44), Cody Nguyen (3:57.49) and Nicholas Ratto (3:57.68) bunched home in the 1,500 in 15th, 18th and 19th for the Aggies.

UCD 5,000-meter dandy Amar Dholakia (14:57.80) was 53rd.

Nina Anderson led a trio of Aggie women with a second-place two-mile finish. Her time was 11:05.97, while colleagues Katherine Ott (11:43.41) and Erica Barr (11:51.17) were eighth and 12th across the finish line.

Jeannine Viruet was busy for the Aggie women …

Taking 10th in the 400 at 1:01;32, she came right back to earn 13th in the 200 (27.41).

Finishing 10th in the 100 was Aggie Michelle Pham (13.71) and Venus Shabgahi (2:15.87) took eighth in the 800.

UCD’s Kristine Lozoya (17:15.35) and Shannon Harcus (17:35.38) were 13th and 35th in the 5,000.
