“I had two main goals for the state: to be in the top 50 of the race and to beat certain runners. I achieved both of those in my last race of the season.” said Dani.

She has a bigger goal for next year, which also happened to be her last year. She wants to earn a state medal.

“I believe it’s attainable. I’ve already set my mind to it now, next season it just has to be done.”
