Angela Wilson, who was Western State Conference champion of the women's 800 meters was named the WSC Female Track Athlete of the Year it was announced today.

She becomes the 26th Marauder to be named a Conference Track or Field Athlete of the Year, and the 15th Marauder woman to earn the honor.  It is the first time for AVC since Christen Rivers was named Foothill Conference Track Female Athlete of the Year.

The second place finisher in the state 800 and AVC record holder in that event, Wilson became the first Marauder to recieve the honor from the WSC.  The others were Foothill Conference recipients.

Wilson finished first in 11 of her 12 800 meter races this season, losing only in the state championships, despite breaking the Marauder school record for the event in that race.  She was the individual WSC champion in the 800 meters and by her finish in the state was named All-America in the event as well.
