Katrina Rix, 16, is a sophomore at Chugiak High School. She participates in the Battle of the Books and says she enjoys reading, drawing, writing and “lots and lots of science.” Katrina plans to get her Ph.D. in astrophysics. She says she’s grown up around dogs, “not huskies but retrievers.” One day she ran two of her neighbors dogs and has been running dogs ever since. Last year, her first Jr. Iditarod, she says she ran with older dogs and got bogged down by the heat. She received the red lantern in last year’s race. This year she expects to be going with some “hyper power.” She plans to continue mushing.
