Valerie Flores Named UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete Of The Week

Sept. 29, 2003

Flores led the 18th-ranked Bruins to the team championship at the 30th Annual Stanford Invitational, defeating such teams as No. 2 Stanford, No. 11 Arkansas and No. 19 Wisconsin. UCLA totaled 37 points, well ahead of second-place Stanford, which had 56. Flores placed third in the race in a time of 21:13 over the 6k course.

The Bruins' team win was their second in as many weeks. Last week, UCLA won the Big Wave Invitational.

This is Flores' first UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and her career.
