Olivia Burton, Women's Cross Country, Week of August 26

Olivia Burton has picket up right where she left off. The sophomore from Foothill Tech won the Ventura Invitational cross country meet for the second year in a row on Friday, covering the challenging 5k course in 21:47, two seconds faster than her race-winning pace of a year ago. Her efforts led the VC women to the overall team title in the event. Her performance last week comes on the heels of a fifth place finish in the season-opening Oxnard Invitational a week ago. Olivia has been named the first VC Pirate Student Athlete of the Week for 2019-20.
