King’s Naomi Smith likes to go out hard and lead the pack.
But those plans didn’t materialize at the start of the 1A state girls cross country championships.
Instead Colville’s Alaina Stone sprinted out to the lead and was setting a blistering pace.
“Right at the beginning I was second by a little bit more than I was comfortable with,” Smith said.
King’s coach Rod Wilcox told Smith that she needed to be ready for the unexpected.
“I told her before the race that someone is going to come out and surprise you,” Wilcox said. “Be ready for it.”
