DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A Devils Lake High School runner says she was “doing the right thing” when she carried an injured opponent on her back in the final stretch of a cross country race.

The Devils Lake Journal reports senior Melanie Bailey noticed Fargo South senior Danielle Lenoue was crying and limping last weekend just past the 2 mile mark of a 2.4 mile course in Glyndon, Minnesota. Bailey refused when Lenoue told her to “go on,” and she tried to have Lenoue lean on her to finish the course.

Bailey says that didn’t help enough, so she carried Lenoue to get medical attention.

Lenoue told Bailey later that she had torn her patella tendon and meniscus.

Bailey says she just “had to do something.” She hopes to pursue a physical therapy career.
