PLYMOUTH — It was the final round of Michiana Idol, a singing contest held by Sturgis, Mich. radio station WBET 99.3. Chelsea Fink, once one of 50 original contestants, had traveled to Sturgis from Nappanee every weekend since Oct. 1, slowly advancing in the competition. She had made it to the very end, the Nov. 5 final performance—and she wasn’t feeling very confident.

Now, Alex Banfich and Waverly Neer will square off against each other at today’s NCAA cross country championships, on the same course where each made her mark in high school.
