"When she runs, she runs with a purpose," Buffalo Gap girls varsity cross country head coach Amelia Coltraine said. "She goes after somebody, she takes em down and she goes to the next person. She's just really a go getter."

Fisher is a leader on the team and in Buffalo Gap's student council.

"Wherever she is she's a leader, whether it's in the classroom, whether it's sports," history teacher and student council advisor Liz Click said. "She just sets a really great example for motivation, determination and a strong work ethic."

Fisher currently has a 4.56 GPA. She is undecided on her career and future major, but has an interest in architecture and hopes to continue running in college.
