Virginia's XC State Leader, Olivia Beckner, announced today that she will be continuing her academic and athletic career at the University of Syracuse.
Olivia may be the state leader in XC but her real events are in track. In fact, she is more known as a middle distance star than a XC star. That certainly means Syracuse is getting a stellar athlete in Beckner who boasts times of 4:51 and 2:54 indoors in the Mile and 1K.
Despite these fast times, Beckner is still looking for that first state title. Currently she is the favorite for the 6A crown and if weather permits could come close to one of the fastest times ever on the Great Meadow course.
This is only Beckner's second XC season which shows everyone just how much she has improved and how ready she will be come the track season.
