Before Brown: A competitive soccer player on one of the nation's top-ranked teams, Olivia competed in her first cross-country season (2007) with very little training, relying on her soccer conditioning to take her to the California State Championships. The next year, as a senior, Olivia chose to leave soccer behind to concentrate on running. Again qualifying as an individual, Olivia returned to the cross-country State Meet in 2008, where she finished 43rd. During her first season of track and field, Olivia posted personal bests of 5:15 in the 1600 and 11:08 in the 3200, taking her to the Section finals.
