Meghan Vogel, a 17-year-old junior at West Liberty-Salem High School, was in last place in the 3,200-meter run as she caught up to Arden McMath, a sophomore from rival Arlington High School, whose body was giving out.  With just 20 meters to go in the race, Vogel was about to pass Arden McMath, when McMath collapsed on the track.  Instead of running past McMath to avoid the last-place finish, Vogel stopped, helped McMath to her feet, placed McMath’s arm around her shoulders and carried her across the finish line, making sure to keep McMath ahead of her to have her finish before her.
