Freshman Kimberly Pena has the fastest feet in town, as proven during the Inland Empire Athletic Conference championship. Not only did the women's cross country team win the championship, defeating Chaffey College, but Pena also earned the best time, finishing the 5K in 20:45.6. She has been named the conference’s Athlete of the Month for October.

After her stellar showing, Pena was named the IEAC October Athlete of the Month. "I feel honored to be recognized after all the hard work that we've all put in," she said. "Our dedication led to a team and individual championship at the conference meet."

Three SBVC students won top awards in the Pasadena Foothill chapter American Institute of Architects (AIA) Birdhouse competition, including first place, second place, and people’s choice. The goals of this birdhouse competition are to encourage construction of functional and aesthetically pleasing birdhouses using environmentally sensitive materials. First place winner Kathleen Ellis has since joined the board AIA Inland CA as the SBVC student representative.
