Catching up with Buchanan junior Corie Smith

On the eve of the Woodbridge Cross Country Invitational, the meet where Buchanan junior Corie Smith felt she put herself on the map a year ago, we present the latest in our 'Catching Up With' interview series. Smith won the Varsity Girls race at Woodbridge last fall and went on to win the CIF-State Division I title. It was a life-changing season for Smith, who teams with senior teammate Meagen Lowe, to form the strongest duo in CA. We caught up with Smith on a late-August Saturday following a workout at Woodward Park, site of the State Championships.
