McDonald runs 3200 meter for a Class C championship title

“Ashlei McDonald had a great two days at state track. Winning a state championship is a pretty big accomplishment. She ran a great race from the start,.” said Johnson County Central’s Girls Head Track Coach Nick Weber. “She did exactly what she needed to do, which was to get out in the lead and run her race,” he said. There was a moment where a couple of runners moved up closer to her with about 800 meters to go, but she responded well and finished the race with a sizable lead. On Saturday, McDonald finished third in the 1600. “Again, she ran a very good race and probably could have moved up to second if the race was a little bit longer,” Coach Weber said.
