It is almost fitting that the DFW Girls Track Runner of the Year poll was a race to the finish!
The top two vote getters ended up racking up more than 150,000 of the more than 300,000 votes, so VYPE DFW decided to name co-winners and catch up with both of the track stars.
We start with Lauren Brown of O.D. Wyatt High School to learn more about the junior - who set a pair of personal records in the 100-meter and 200-meter dash this season - including how'd she get her start in track, what she does off the track and more.
VYPE: How long have you been running track and how did you get your start?
BROWN: "I started running track at the age of 7. My mother was a big influence on me wanting to be great at track. She's in the TCU record books. In our house we are a track family and my 4-year-old sister is next."
VYPE: What is your favorite thing about track?
BROWN: "My favorite thing about track is the opportunity that it gives me to show the gift that God has blessed me with. I like the fun times that I have with my teammates but I really enjoy stepping up to the line and competing at the highest levels. We have some of the fastest girls in the US right here in DFW. Working out with and competing with them is definitely a favorite of mine because it forces me to improve.
VYPE: Go-to pregame meal? Routine?
