Francesca Reilly of the cross country team is the Hollins Student-Athlete of the Week. Last Saturday, the cross country team traveled to her arch rival Sweet Briar for a dual meet on the Vixens home course. Hollins defeated her rivals by just three points, giving Hollins a 2-0 mark over Sweet Briar this season. Reilly was one of only two runners to eclipse the 31 minute mark and helped to secure the win. Francesca made up almost 30 seconds in a big stretch run to best the Vixen's Alisa Wash by over 22 seconds to claim second place points. It marked the best finish for the sophomore, in this her first collegiate season.
