Olivia Burton, Women's Cross Country, Week of November 4

Olivia Burton ran a race like no other in VC history on Friday. The sophomore from Foothill Tech High School ran the 5k course at San Diego's Mission Bay Park in 19:21, two seconds better than the competition to capture the individual gold at the Southern California Regional Championships. She finished first out of 183 runners in the event, a first for VC women's cross country. For her efforts, Olivia has been named this week's M & M Sports VC Pirate Student Athlete of the Week, her second such honor this season.
