The Wilmington Road Runners Club awarded Cape Fear Academy senior Dani Kranchalk one of the club’s $1,000 scholarships Wednesday at Cape Fear Academy.
Kranchalk, who will attend Harvard University in the fall, was a three-time captain for the Hurricanes’ cross country team.
“I have been running since seventh grade. Before that, I wasn’t an athlete at all,” said Kranchalk. “I didn’t think I could do anything like this. Six years later, I love running and it’s made me who I am in so many ways.”
Kranchalk says she will continue to pound the pavement, but not at the collegiate level.
“I might join a club,” said Kranchalk, “but I will be running on my own in some capacity.”
