Back-to-back champion

Kilynn Hammons, Howler Staff Writer

This time last year, sophomore Natalie Duggan competed in the women’s 5K and won the Oklahoma City Memorial 5K. This past weekend, she competed and won again. She completed the race almost two minutes faster than last year with a time of 17 minutes and 46 seconds.

Natalie runs on Santa Fe’s Cross-country and Track teams. She also runs outside of school with her club team Jenks America.

“The meaning of this race is so much more than just another race,” Duggan said. “The meaning behind this race is to support those who lost someone during this tragedy. My heart goes out to all that have lost someone.”

This marathon is an annual race to honor the lives lost in the OKC Murrah building bombing in 1995. This race is more than just a race, it’s a time of mourning and tragedy. Santa Fe’s heart goes to all the families that lost someone in the bombing.
