Olowara, a freshman from Aunti Ayds Girls Comprehensive High School in Lagos, Nigeria and a three-event Nigerian national champion, came up big for the Jaguars at the Cerritos Invitational meet.

Olowara, the 2014 CCCAA state community college cross country champion, ran a 4:37.97 and defeated 2013 state champion Laura Aceves of East Los Angeles in winning the 1500 meters. Aceves finished eight seconds behind Olowara.

Olowara also won the 3,000 meters by 45 seconds, running a 9:41.61 to defeat runner-up Jessica Steinhoff of Palomar (10:26.41).

Honorable mention went to Southwestern track & field athlete Daeniesha Burrell, Palomar softball player Kali Pugh and Southwestern softball pitcher Kylie Brase.

Burrell, a freshman from Chula Vista High School, won the 200 meters in 25.49 and the 400 meters in 59.27 at the Cerritos Invite. She also led off the Jaguars' winning 4x400 relay team and their second-place 4x100 relay team.

Pugh, the Comets' sophomore shortstop from Rancho Buena Vista High School and the returning PCAC Player of the Year, State Player of the Year, state batting champion and first-team community college All-American, went 4-for-7 with five RBIs in the Comets' two games during the week. She went 3-for-4 with a triple in a 9-0 run-rule victory over Imperial Valley and was 2-for-3 with a walk-off home run in the bottom of the fifth inning as Palomar downed Long Beach City College via run rule 11-3. Pugh is hitting .608 so far in 2015 with six doubles, two triples, six homers and 23 RBIs.

Brase, a freshman from Santana, was 3-1 for the week with a 1.84 ERA over 19 1/3 innings. She defeated San Diego City College 2-1 in relief, beat COD 11-2 in relief, then pitched a complete game to beat the Roadrunners again 2-1.
