TERRE HAUTE â€” One is winding down her college career, the other just getting started.
Both say they are feeling fine, now, following injuries that set them back at the start of the season.
Each chose an Ivy League college to attend, and at an historic conference championship meet a couple weeks ago â€” run in a driving snowstorm â€” they finished the race almost side-by-side.
Now, Alex Banfich and Waverly Neer will square off against each other at todayâ€™s NCAA cross country championships, on the same course where each made her mark in high school.

FORT WAYNE â€”Â Turn-overs are trouble against any opponent.
Against two-time defending state champ Fort Wayne Bishop Luers, they were a killer.
The Knights capitalized with scores on each of Bremenâ€™s three turnovers â€” including a backbreaking pair of miscues in the fourth quarter â€” and the Lionsâ€™ dream run to semistate ended in a 35-21 loss to Luers on the road in Fort Wayne Friday night.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth girls basketball fans might not see many faces they recognize on the floor this season.
The Lady Pilgrims return one starter in junior forward Amber Redinger and one other player with meaningful varsity playing time in fellow junior and guard Lauren Tanner. Beyond that, the team is mostly new.
