Skyline trio leads the way to cross country victory

October 1, 2013

Alex Daugherty has put her talent on display as a basketball and track and field athlete, but she hadn’t run a cross-country race until early September.

The Skyline High School senior is showing she has the stamina for the sport, winning the individual girls title at Klahanie Park in 18:56.

She had plenty of help as Skyline easily defeated Ballard (19-41) and Eastlake (15-50). Sophomore Maizy Brewer was just 2 seconds back in second place, and fellow senior Samantha Krahling took third in 19:04.
