Before the gun sounded to begin Saturday’s Region 5A Cross County Meet, Danielle Hoop thought her biggest competition would come from Danville’s Kaitlin Snapp.
The two have battled each other for the last couple of seasons at the regional meet.
In the latest rankings, Snapp was ranked first in the Class A while Hoop was ranked second.
At Trimble County Park Saturday, Hoop beat Snapp to the finish line. The only problem was that neither one was thinking about a seventh-grader from Sayre.
