Holladay’s Adria Favero (fourth from left) led her 13-14-year-old girls team to a national championship at the USATF Junior Olympics National Championships in College Station, Texas, Dec. 10. She placed second overall in the 4,000 meter race—among 333 runners —in earning All-American recognition for the Wolfpack Running Club Utah team. Her younger sister, Emmy, also received All-American honors with a 20th-place showing in the 9-10-year-old division, leading her Wolfpack RC Utah squad to a seventh-place finish, just 20 points out of first place, among the 21 teams in the category. During the summer, Adria won the national championship in the 3000 meters, breaking a 2006 state record. “What a huge accomplishment for Adria. It was pretty awesome,” her mom Kristen Flavero said. “Emmy was ecstatic to be an All-American. This is her first year doing comp running and she worked so hard. She has seen the grit and toughness of her big sis and I think that really helps.”
