She got to the school around 7 am on Monday morning. She and her teammates were asked to run several laps around the track, and after the run, Purefoy collapsed. Emergency crews were called but it was too late. Her heart stopped on the way to the hospital. Her father said extreme dehydration played a role. Her teammates said she'd asked the coaches for a water break several times but was denied.
