Caitlyn McCarthy

Jacky Mathews Varsity Cross Country

Do you feel close to your teammates?

Yes, because we have a smaller team; all of us have become closer together.

What obstacles will your team have to overcome?

We are a smaller team with not as many runners. That gives us a disadvantage and our top seven runners will have to work even harder to get a top spot at conference.

Why do you like cross country?

It’s such a challenging sport and not very many people can do it. Also you get results quickly and we love “runners high”.

What is one of your proudest moments so far in cross country?

Being able to run as the top second runner on varsity.

Do you plan on doing cross country in the future? If so, where?

I plan on doing cross country all through highschool, and will continue running after that.
