LCSC cross country team signs first recruit in Olson
The Lewis-Clark State College women’s cross country team has signed its first recruit for the 2010 season in AnnieKate Olson of Nome High School in Alaska.
Olson was the top runner for the Nome High squad and won the Region I North title.
Olson is being coached by former Warrior Jeff Collins, who has high praises for Olson.
“He (Collins) understands our program and what it takes to be successful here so his words of confidence in her mean a lot when it comes to our expectations and her future success in the program,” LCSC coach Mike Collins said. “With the team losing only three seniors we are being very particular about the new runners we welcome into our family, and we believe AnnieKate will fit in very well.”
Coach Collins says the Alaska cross country season is shorter because of the weather so he’s excited to see how she does when she has the opportunity to run year-round in Lewiston to help her develop and compete a the next level.
Olson plans to major in either Humanities or Social Work at LCSC.
The LCSC women’s team has won three consecutive Frontier Conference titles and placed 15th at the NAIA national meet last year.
