ST. MARYS — For senior Roughrider Amanda Dues, working hard is easy when it pays off.
Dues is a member of both the track and cross country team for Memorial High School, and she is a dedicated runner. She started track in junior high, and traded volleyball for cross country in high school. Though Dues had heard it was a tough sport, she started the summer workouts with an optimistic outlook.
It turned out the sport was intense, with their coach requiring runners to finish a certain distance in a certain amount of time.
