Senior Spotlight: Getting to Know Alex Apple

Alex Apple has always been an important element to the Flying Tigers, but she may not be the name you associate with a Ragsdale jersey. As Coach Anne Popek says, Alex would be the school record holder if it weren't for teammate Sara Platek! With a dominant front runner as a teammate, few may know Alex has run 19:09 for 5k. Judging from her bright personality, however, you would never guess that this girl has spent her time running in the shadows; the enthusiasm and friendship she brings to practice helps to keep her team loose and ready to run fast. She's got some big goals to finish out her career at Ragsdale, so keep an eye out for Miss Apple under that 19-minute mark.
