Flaws shines in sprints again, climbs to No. 4 in 3A in 100

Freshman leads WCHS girls to 2nd at IF-A Invite

April 30, 2013
The Daily Freeman Journal

IOWA FALLS - Allie Flaws proved that she was more than a one-meet wonder here last night.

This girl is here to stay.

Flaws, just a freshman for the Webster City girls' track team, followed up last week's double sprint gold at the Boone Classic with two more top finishes at last night's Iowa Falls-Alden Invitational.

The speedster won the 100-meter dash in 12.68 seconds - the fourth-fastest time in Class 3A this spring - and she followed it up with another gold in the 200 in 27.30. Teammate Kisston Thomas, another rookie, was second in the 100 (13.19) and fourth in the 200 (28.35).

Flaws and Thomas ran the third and fourth legs of the Lynx winning 4x200 relay (1:55.03). They were joined by Kenady Highland and Carrie Gerdes.

"Allie looks phenomenal," WCHS co-head coach Kristy Manson said. "She works hard, she trains hard, she's a competitor and she doesn't like to get beat, that's for sure. And having Kisston right there pushing her, that's awesome."

Webster City won six events, double-placed in eight individual events and brought home 18 medals in all en route to a runner-up result in the four-team field. The Lynx piled up 169 points to trail only host Iowa Falls-Alden (181). Eagle Grove (111) was third, followed by Fort Dodge St. Edmond (102).

"It was great to have another opportunity to compete," Manson said.

Morgan Moline got the evening on the track off to a rousing start, as the senior won the 3,000 (12:21.45); teammate Courtney Biere was third (13:08.17).

Manson was also impressed with her hurdles, notably Kaylee Schnathorst and Hannah Myers. They ran the opening and anchor legs on the winning shuttle hurdle relay (1:11.63), and then finished second (Myers, 16.34) and third (Schnathorst, 16.39) in the 100 hurdles. Both girls shaved a second off their times from the Boone Classic in the individual event.

Schnathorst added runner-up finishes in the shot put (34 feet, 4 inches) and discus (97-5).

The Lynx 4x400 - Biere, Morgan Shannon, Faith McClain and Gabbi Hoversten - finished off the night by crossing the finish line first (4:31.45).

Shannon added a runner-up result in the 800 (2:33.42), as did Myers in the high jump (4-8) and Gerdes in the long jump (14-7).

Flaws, Gerdes and Thomas joined forces with Kenzie Garvey to place second in the 4x100 (54.46).

Coming off an ankle injury that sidelined her for several weeks, Morgan Gourley snagged bronze in the high jump (4-6), as did the 4x800 (11:41.99) of Hoversten, Kenady Highland, Cassidy Bultena and Ashley Flaws.

WCHS won't have any time to rest, as it gets set to take part in the rescheduled Bengal Relays in Gilbert this afternoon. Field events will start at 4:30 p.m., with the running events hitting the track at 5 p.m.
