Cross country runners Elizabeth Roux, left, and friend Emily Clark, right, warm up before setting out for a run with their team after school on Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013 at Gulf Coast High School in Naples. Roux, a junior, lost her mother last week to cancer, but continues as active member of the team. "I consider us to be the closest team in the school," Roux said. "We're like a family." Roux ran her season best time last week in the North Port race and will run again this Saturday in Titusville.
