Athlete of the Week
In her first ever XC meet Olivia M. went out hard and commanded the lead for the majority of the race. She eventually got passed, but held on for third out of over 40 girls, finishing 17 seconds off of first place.
A dedicated and focused athlete Olivia trained all summer in preparation for her first XC season and looks poised to make a splash in the MBIL. (Olivia beat last year’s MBIL Champion by 20 seconds)
Olivia’s teammates packed it in behind her with 5 girls running under 27 minutes and all 7 girls under 30 minutes. Landmark had both 5 and 7 girls in before any other team and finished second out of 6 teams, falling by only 4 points.
Led by Olivia the Landmark Girl’s XC team is second in the MBIL and is looking forward to our next race at Gann on Thursday!
