Smith rooting for McDaniel

Freshman McDaniel closing in on senior Smith’s freshman times midway through season

By THOMAS LOTT

Sara Smith has been one of, if not the best runner, the Lady Wolves’ cross country team has ever seen. She holds the school’s cross country time record running an 11:22 at the Lubbock meet as a sophomore and has held the top spot for the Lady Wolves throughout her time on the team.

And with her success, the Lady Wolves have gotten better and deeper as a team. More girls are coming out to run and the competition is getting stronger among teammates.

That is where Sarah McDaniel comes in. McDaniel has worked her way up to the No. 2 spot on the LadyWolves finishers this season. She has passed up runners the likes of Brooklyn Strafuss who was a multiple time Top 10 finisher as a freshman in 2013, and her sister Blakely Strafuss who was pivotal in the Lady Wolves’ late season push last year.

The win moved the Lady Harvesters to 1-0 in district play and the Lady Wolves to 0-1. The loss made the Lady Wolves 0-2 this season in five game matches and 0-3 in their last three.
