“It was cool to see who was the best of the best,” Wilson added.

LeFore also had a great time.

“It was an amazing experience because there were so many girls that have the same talent as me,” LeFore said. “And I got to test my talents to see how good I was. From this experience I learned that I should not underestimate myself and to worry about my race and not how others are running.”

LeFore added: “Our team ranked high because we all sacrificed and worked hard! All of the girls are like my second family!”

Evergreen Storm team member, Lauren Mahnke, said, “It was a great weekend and a great experience to run with girls from all over the country!”

The experience has inspired her to keep running. She is already sad there will be no Storm practice on Monday.

“The altitude was tough, but we ran through it,” Mahnke added.

The team practices at the Union High School track, and is coached by Mike McKinney.
