At the ASAA First National Bank Cross-Country State Championships in Anchorage on Saturday, Kenai Central High School had people stationed all over the five-kilometer course in case Bailey Beeson collapsed as she did last weekend.
Beeson ran past them all.
But despite an early lead, Allie Ostrander, a freshman that had dominated the competition all season and was the race favorite, collapsed where her mom, Teri Ostrander, was waiting near the fourth kilometer. Then Allie stood back up, and walked the final kilometer of the race.
