    Junior year- 16

“Cross country, I like a lot of things about it, but my favorite thing would probably have to be the team bonding that we have, like how close the team gets over the course like just from June to September, and how like when we do make it to the postseason, like the girls that don’t even make it go and watch and cheer them on. I think it’s really cool and I don’t think you get that in a lot of other sports. I started cross country when I was in fourth grade, but I started running when I was in second grade.I only really ran because my dad ran and my grandpa ran cross country in high school. Then my mom ran like half marathons and stuff and I started off running with her and I just really loved it so I just keep going. For the school, I don’t really know to be honest. It changes every year like I just kinda go out there and run for my teammates and do what is best for the whole team. I run for my family knowing like this is going to make them proud if I letter and go out and try my hardest.”
