Meko, the CIF-Southern Section Division 4 champion in the girls 1,600, will attend Johns Hopkins University, which has won the past two Division III women’s cross country titles.
Albano, who finished fourth in Division 4 in the 1,600, is headed to Sacramento State.
The two finished one-two in the event at the Los Padres League championship meet, helping the Titans girls win their second consecutive LPL title.
“These two have been the heart and soul of our girls cross country and track programs,” athletic director Jim Souza said in an email, “and are both accomplished students as well, ranked in the top 10 in their class.”
