Jessica Pixler named USTFCCCA D-II West Region AOY...

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association named Seattle Pacific's Jessica Pixler as its West Region Cross Country Athlete of the Year in Division II for the second year in a row.

Pixler won her regional title in record-setting fashion earlier this month and looks ready to make a run for her second straight NCAA Division II title, which will happen on November 22nd in Slippery Rock, PA.

Pixler set a course record of 20:57.1 and finished more than 30 seconds ahead of the field in winning her second straight West Region title at UC San Diego. Pixler, the defending NCAA Division II cross country champion, finished sixth in a field of 278 runners at the 2008 Stanford Invitational and won the Great Northwest Athletic Conference by a large margin. She is a junior from Sammamish, Wash.
