Cross country is a democratic sport. It is also an honest sport. Reputations mean nothing. It is, perhaps too simply, she or he who gets from point a to point b, overcoming natural challenges and human challenges as well. In her third try, Katie Knight overcame all to win the Nike Border Clash 13 in a fine time of 15:44.

On a perfect day for cross country racing, Katie covered the 4,387 meter course fourteen seconds faster than than second place finisher, Amy-Eloise Neale, who finished in 15:58. The Washington girls shut out the Oregon Girls, 15-48, as Washington went one-five (Katie Knight, Amy-Eloise Neale, Jordan McPhee, Alexandra Ephraimson,  and Maddie Meyers). Oregon's top five, who finished 6, 9,10,11 and 18 ( Sara Tsai, Erin Clark, Ashley Maton, Megan Fristoe and Gracie Todd), also ran well, knowing that they have a year to plan their new battle against Washington's finest.

Sunday, November 20, 2011 was a day that Katie Knight, who won her Section 3 A State cross country championships in Washington, won't soon forget. A strong field, a beautifully sunny and cool day, gave Katie a day to remember. For Katie Knight, the third time really was the charm. What will she do next year?
