Here is the intro to the interview by Coach Small:
As one of the Warrior's top runners since her freshman year, Emily has not only been instrumental to the team's success as an athlete, but as a teammate and leader as well. Blaha has finished inside the top 15 at the CCS Championship the past three seasons and had a breakthrough race at the Mt. Sac Invitational this year where she ran 18:36 for the 3 mile course, her first time under 19 minutes. She is #4 all-time for the Warriors with a personal best of 19:27 for the 5k Woodward Park course and has personal bests of 5:15 for 1600 and 11:28 for 3200 meters. As the Cross Country team captain, an honor she also held last season, she leads by example on the course and off. This fall she capped her high school cross country career by being named to the San Jose Mercury News All-County Team. She will run in NCAA Division 1 next year for the Navy.
