Part I - Inputs and Outputs
Lacy was a 15-year-old girl with the reputation of being a talented star athlete. She was
scheduled to compete in six track events at her school track and field day. The sports meet
was held on an unusually warm Saturday at the end of a cool winter, with an ambient
temperature of 98 F. In addition, there were dry, hot westerly winds blowing, and low
humidity.
