A high school cross-country runner collapsed at a North Carolina meet and died.

News outlets report officials say Union Pines High School senior Samantha Davis died early Sunday. Davis was also a member of the high school band, which shared a post on Facebook post confirming her Sunday death.

The Pilot reported Davis had what seemed to be a seizure during the Saturday morning race.

Davis' mother, Rebecca Davis, previously has said her daughter suffered a softball-related injury in 2016 that resulted in seizures and an epilepsy diagnosis.

A GoFundMe for the teen said she collapsed at the meet and remained unconscious. It said the fundraising goal of $2,000 to help cover the Davis' family expenses has been surpassed, with nearly $12,000 being raised by Monday.
