Sport: Cross Country

Position: Varsity

What your most memorable sports moment? Why?

“My personal most memorable moment was when I got 4th place at a meet we had. I ended up having an amazing race, and get an even time of 21:00. Some of the boys on the team picked me up and spun me around when I’d finished. We’re like a family, and we don’t let a good race go un-noticed. ”

Why did you join the team?

“I joined honestly because I was good in middle school. I had some doubts about going into it at high school because my 8th grade year wasn’t that great. Also, I went to a private school, and competition was a lot smaller, and it was easier to do well. ”

Who is your inspiration for running cross country?

“My family had some pretty good runners in it’s history. My grandma used to run a lot when she was younger and my cousin was an amazing runner that ran for OU.  I don’t really have ‘inspiration’ but I do feel like I’ll be letting down a bunch of people if I don’t do well.

What is your favorite food?

Pasta: all day, everyday. I eat it every night and it’s loaded with carbs and with some salt, it’s everything a runner needs.

Do you like roller coasters? Why or why not?

“That shouldn’t be a question for me, yes!”

Tell your favorite joke.

What is you lucky number? Why?

“My bib number for my best race was 217, so I guess that’s it. And my lucky track lane number is 4.”
