The senior has since beaten the disease, went onto make the state meet in both cross country and track over the past year, and recently had her best regional cross country finish, crossing the line in second place at this year's meet.
Jeff Adams was on-site at the 1A Region 2 Championship at Holloway Park as part of our coverage team and took over 750 photos of the days' events including this shot of Oak Hall's Austin Montini and a pack of runners behind him.
