Valle Named SCIAC Runner of the Week

LOS ANGELESRoxanne Valle was named SCIAC Women's Cross Country Athlete of the Week on Monday after a standout performance last weekend.

The senior from Azusa was Oxy's top finisher and the 16th-best overall runner at The Master's Invitational 5K in Santa Clarita on Saturday. Valle led Oxy to a seventh-place finish out of a field of 30 teams that included UCLA and USC.

Valle crossed the line in 18:25.7 for a course record. 

"Roxanne ran with a lot of composure and confidence, and was rewarded with a nice course personal record," Bartlett said. "I'm excited to watch her race again in two weeks as she continues to grow into the season."

As a team, the Tigers were the top D3 team at the meet.

Oxy runs again on Oct. 13 at UC Riverside.
