Culver Girls Academy alumni Alex Banfich and Waverly Neer hug after the Ivy League cross country race that qualified both for the NCAA Championships.
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.
