Academy of Art runner wins conference championship

Josh Thorson, a graduate student at the Academy of Art, won the Pacific West Conference Cross Country Championships on Saturday.

The No. 24 Urban Knights claimed second overall as a team in a race that was defined by its muddy conditions.

Eight Art U runners were named to All-PacWest teams.

Redshirt junior McKaela Christenson made third-team to lead the women’s team, which took third place in the competition.

Playing inside Kezar Pavillion, the Academy of Art volleyball team swept Holy Names (25-19, 25-17, 25-12).

The team logged its fourth-straight match with 9 or more blocks.
The Urban Knights are now 6-14.College Sports
