WAC honors Vandals runner

The Spokesman-Review

Idaho’s Dee Olson was selected the Western Athletic Conference women’s cross country athlete of the week after taking first place at the Willamette Invitational on Saturday.

Olson, a junior, won the 5K race in 17 minutes, 1.50 seconds to lead the Vandals to a sixth-place team finish.

Olson, the first Vandal to win a race this season, has been Idaho’s top finisher in the last two races. She was second at the Sundodger Invitational on Sept. 17.

This is the first WAC weekly honor for Olson and the first for the Vandals.
