Outback Invitational

AshLee had a great time in Boise. She posted some great times and brought home 3 first place medals.

She was leading the 200 Friday night when she stumbled with less than 5 meters to go, allowing Alyssa Covington of Borah and Ellen Rouse of Orofino to slip past her. Ash hung on for 3rd and still ran a personal best time of 25.8 seconds. She said her momentum was just too fast for her legs to keep up!

She ran a strong 400, winning in 58.27 seconds, her best so far this year and a meet record for the Outback Invitational.

The Lewiston relay teams were the big story of the weekend though. The 4x200, featuring Jayme Doeringsfeld, Kacy Wessels, Janie Perez and AshLee just missed their school record, winning in 1:45.9 seconds. The Lewiston Tribune noted it as the best 4x200 time in their circulation area in at least 8 years.

The same 4 girls shattered the school record in the 4x400, winning in 4:06.39, best in the area for the past 15 years. Ash ran a 57.7 split to anchor the win.

Given the tremendous success of her relays, Ash has decided to run both of them at the regional meet next week, along with the 200 and the 400.

More later about her amazing day yesterday at the District II Meet of Champions.
