NOTRE DAME - Alex Banfich says she has recovered from the illness and hamstring problems that disrupted her training much of the summer.

Now, if she could just get her stamina back, she'd be all set.

"Yeah, I didn't quite have it today," said Banfich, a Princeton University senior, following her 13th-place finish at Friday's Notre Dame Cross Country Invitational.

The Plymouth native, who captured three high school state cross country titles and five track championships while running for Culver Girls Academy, had been considered one of the favorites to win the prestigious women's blue division.

Banfich Running Strong for Princeton

Alex Banfich, a Princeton University cross-country standout, is enjoying every minute of her senior season.

"It is a little funny," Banfich said. "Four years goes by so fast but at the same time, it's such a different experience. This year, I'm really having a great time and all of the girls have been wonderful. I couldn't ask for a better team to be a captain of."

Banfich provides leadership on and off the field. She is one of the team's top runners and has helped the Tigers post several impressive performances this season.

"I think our team is coming along very well," said Banfich. "We graduated quite a few of our top girls last year, so a lot of people looked at us as young and inexperienced. But we have a lot of talent and the team is looking great."

Mike Fout and Alex Banfich dominated Indiana cross country when they were seniors in high school.

Now, they are seniors in college. And their running careers have come full circle.

Banfich, who won three state cross country titles and five track championships for Culver Girls Academy, is now the leading runner for No. 22 Princeton University.

If nothing else, today's meet is an opportunity for the Princeton women's team to get away from cafeteria food for a while.

"The team is having dinner at my house the night after the race," laughs Banfich, who will direct the team bus to her family's home in Plymouth for some real Hoosier eatin'.
