What is your favorite course to run in Maine?
What is the toughest course to run in Maine?
What meet during the regular season do you put extra emphasize on to compete well at?
Festival of Champions because it's a chance to compete against runners who I don't normally run against.
What is your favorite cross country race so far in your high school career & favorite cross country memory?
Festival of Champions my sophomore year because it was the first race I'd felt content with. My favorite memory was regionals my sophomore year when my team qualified for states without Shannon who couldn't complete the race due to medical issues. This allowed her to go on to race at states placing second.
