GROSSMONT COLLEGE – With pricing at the Sodexo outlet a matter of campus controversy, the Summit staff decided to see what other nearby off-campus food outlets are charging.   We went to the Subway and to the Fresh & Easy market to see if we could find items matching those on sale at Sodexo.  

Not all the items could be directly compared.   In the chart below, a blank space indicates that we were unable to find a matching item at this outlet.

The comparisons were made in the  second week of October 2010.  Prices may change.

Tough Mt. SAC course prepares Grossmont for Oct. 28 cross-country championships

MOUNT SAN ANTONIO COLLEGE–The Grossmont Women’s Cross Country team did exceptionally well, on what is arguably the toughest course in California at the Mt. Sac Invitational on Friday, Oct. 15, their coach Robert Claesson said.

Grossmont’s top two finishers set both seasonal and personal records for themselves. Janine Ramos finished in 20 minutes and 26 seconds,  placing 45th in the field of 169 racers.  Anna Lee Mendoza finished in 22 minutes and 30 seconds
placing in 96th place.

Due to its multiple hills and slopes, Mt. Sac’s three-mile course is “one of the most revered and famous courses in the world” according to the Walnut, Calif., college’s website–an assessment with which Claesson agrees.

Overall as a  team, the Griffins finished in 18th place and  third in the conference.  Claesson said his team benefitted from the experience to such extent that they are far more than ready to compete in the conference championship
that will take place Oct. 28..

Other Grossmont competitors on Friday included Nicole Waught, Gabby Rivas, and Nayeli Bernate.
