Brieanna Tafoya, Women's Cross Country, Week of November 18

The Pirates' women's cross country team completed another outstanding season over the weekend, placing sixth overall in the state, their third straight Top-10 finish. Leading the way was the dynamic duo of Olivia Burton and Brieanna Tafoya, who finished second and third, respectively, in the 5k race. Tafoya, a sophomore from Foothill Tech, finished Saturday's state championships with a time of 18:39 in a bronze medal performance. This season she was the team's top finisher at the Bakersfield Invitational, where she won individual medalist honors, and at the SoCal Preview, and was the Pirates' No. 2 in every other race in which she entered. For her efforts, Brieanna has been named this week's M & M Sports VC Pirate Student Athlete of the Week.
