The sub-plot thickens
There is an interesting plot thickening as the final weeks of the cross country running season fall off the calendar.
And, as each meet comes and goes, the friendly competition between the key players -- Nicole Westpahl and Larissa Lurken -- increases.
The juxtaposition of the two runners is as obvious as their difference in height. (Westphal is 5'10" and Lurken is 5'0".)
