DECORAH, IOWA -- Johanna Olson of Wadena, a senior co-captain for the Luther College women's cross country team, has been selected the Iowa Conference Female Athlete of the Week.
Olson was selected for her performance at the Les Duke Invitational on Sept. 22. At that race, Olson won her 11th consecutive collegiate race, posting a course-record time of 17:23.
Earlier this year, Olson captured individual titles at the St. Mary's University and Luther All-American invitationals.
She is the defending NCAA Division III national champion and is attempting to become only the second woman in NCAA III history to capture two individual titles.
The Luther women's team is ranked fourth in the nation after winning three team titles in as many races this fall.
