Two runners training for big marathons had nice tuneups Sunday in winning the men's and women's divisions at the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in San Jose.
Ryan Vail, an Oklahoma State All-American who's entered in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 3, won the flat, 13.1-mile race in 1 hour, 2.46 seconds. Fresno native Fernando Cabada was 28 seconds behind, while Canadian Dylan Wykes, 20th in the London Olympics marathon, was third. Former Cal runner Chris Chavez placed sixth.
Vancouver's Natasha Wodak won the women's race in 1:17.40 and now has her sights set on her marathon debut Oct. 20 in Toronto.
Megan Deakins, a recent Duke grad, was almost 2 minutes behind Wodak, and Ramona Sanchez of Sparks, Nev., was third. Former Stanford star Julia Stamps Mellon was sixth, followed by Menlo Park's Heather Tanner and Google program manager Shaluinn Fullove of Palo Alto.
Stanford's 73-match home unbeaten streak -- the second-longest in NCAA Division I women's soccer history -- and its 44-match conference win streak ended with a 1-0 loss to Arizona State before 1,701 at Cagan Stadium.
The unranked Sun Devils (7-4, 2-1 Pac-12) scored on a 25-yard shot from Sara Tosti into the upper right corner in the 24th minute.
No. 2 Stanford (9-1-1, 2-1) hadn't lost at home since Nov. 23, 2007, when it fell 2-0 to Connecticut in the NCAA tournament.
The Cardinal had gone 70-0-3 at Cagan since then but fell short of North Carolina's mark of 84 (1986-94). Stanford hadn't lost a Pac-10/12 match since a 1-0 loss at UCLA on Oct. 31, 2008.
The Bears' Connor Hallisey scored on a free kick from 30 yards, and Taylor Peay scored late in regulation to force overtime.
