Olivia Lanza

PA Track

On the verge of a big win all season, the young Pittston Area girls’ track and field team got a boost from sophomore Olivia Lanza just when it needed it most.

Lanza won two individual events, and teamed up with other Lady Patriots to win a relay event, as PA beat Tunkhannock, 76-74, in a WVC meet last week.

For her effort, Olivia has been named The Sunday Dispatch Pittston Area Athlete of the Week for the week May 6-15.

Lanza won both the 100m and 300m Hurdles and then ran a leg in the 4 x 400m relay to get a win for the Lady Patriots.

Posters of Olivia can be seen at Tony’s Pizza, Pittston and Smart Designs and Graphics, Wyoming, sponsors of the Pittston Area Athlete of the Week.
