Danielle Knott is a sophomore at CMC, where she’s majoring in Econ-Accounting with a finance sequence. Danielle was ambivalent about running at first but realized in college that the team aspect is what makes cross country so special. Now she is an accomplished runner who has whittled minutes off her personal records. Her favorite place to run with the team is Live Oak because 1. it’s a rare pocket of woods and 2. it’s downhill all the way back. Her favorite post-race meal is anything from Pitzer’s brunch. Danielle is from San Marino, California.
