Lodi High super sophomore Cassidy Daley set for her second showing at state

Lodi High long-distance standout Cassidy Daley recently qualified for her third state meet in her career and for the second time in the state cross country championships being held at Woodward Park in Fresno on Saturday.

Daley recently placed fourth in Division I at the Sac-Joaqin Section Masters Championships at Willow Hill in Folsom with a time of 18 minutes, 50 seconds on the three-mile course to advance to the state meet.

A sophomore, Daley, who placed 19th in the 3200 at the state track and field championships as a freshman in addition to last year's state cross country meet, will also compete in the Junior Olympics regional qualifier in Folsom the day after the state meet.

News-Sentinel sports writer Richard Banas II did an interview with Daley as she prepared for the state meet.

Q: This is your second time running at the state cross country championships. How have your goals changed from when you were a freshman up until now?
A: When I was a freshman my goal was just to make it to state; it was all just an experience last year. As for this year, I have goals to do well at state and improve my personal records .
