High school runner carries collapsed foe across line
Meghan Vogel won Ohio’s high school Division III championship last week in the 1,600-meter race, but it’s her performance in the 3,200-meter final that’s getting attention. Vogel stopped right before the finish line to assist competitor Arden McMath, who had collapsed just ahead of her. Vogel carried McMath across the line in 14th place — one place ahead of herself. State rules prohibit competitors from assisting each other, but officials didn’t disqualify either runner undere the circumstances. Vogel said that this finish meant more to her than her 1,600-meter title.
