Fromm Finishes Eighth At State Track Meet

Life is filled with little hurdles for us to clear. On Friday, May 20th, Scotland Countyís Ali Fromm was faced with 10 hurdles, all about three feet in height. To make matters even more difficult, the junior at Scotland County R-I High School was expected to race the 100-meter hurdles against 16 of the stateís best athletes all in front of a packed house at Lincoln University in Jefferson City.

Fromm posted the fifth best time in the preliminaries (17.11) and qualified to run for the state championship. But the speedster hit the first hurdle and threw her rhythm off, ultimately going down later in the race and winding up with an eighth place finish in a time of 20.03. Hannah Farrell of East Buchanan High School won the race in a time of 15.49 to edge out Lamarís Kayla Piley who crossed the finish line in 15.67 seconds.

Fromm will be able to chalk up the event as a learning experience and hope to return to the state event next season. Sheíll get the opportunity to see many of the same faces, as both Farrell and Piley are fellow juniors as were four of the top eight runners in the event, which featured just seven seniors among the 16 finalists. There were three freshmen that made it to state, including Frommís district competition, Miranda Chapin of South Shelby, who finished ninth overall.

Marceline won the girlsí team Class 2 State Championship with 44 total points in the 18 events scored. Clark County finished tied for 12th behind a first place finish from junior Shaina Dochterman in the 300-meter hurdles and second place points from sophomore Courtney Shuman in the triple jump. The Lady Indians also finished fifth in the 4x400-meter relay.
