Proudest athletic accomplishment: When the track team won districts her junior year, when she ran on the 3,200 relay and won the 3,200. "It was the first year I ran the 2-mile and I was excited to move on and have the team do so well."

Last class in which she earned lower than a B: She can't remember. "Maybe in third grade?" she said.

College: She will attend Notre Dame this fall and is undecided about her major. She was invited to walk on to the cross country team.
