AMES - Allie Flaws certainly hasn't gotten any slower since the end of her freshman track season 10 months ago.
Now a sophomore, the Webster City speedster picked up right where she left off when she stepped into the starting blocks on Monday at the Iowa State University Indoor.
Flaws - a Class 3A state medal winner in the 100-meter dash last spring - screamed down the track and finished the 60-meter dash in 8.28 seconds to place sixth against a field of 191 other runners.
It was one of four top-25 finishes for the Lynx, who will take part in one more indoor meet on Saturday at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake before they get set to begin the outdoor portion of the season.
Junior Hannah Myers fell one inch short of tying her career-best mark in the high jump. She cleared 4 feet, 10 inches to sit in a six-way tie for sixth-place. There were 32 total entrants.
Myers also had a strong opening event on the track; she was 22nd out of 168 runners in the 60 hurdles with a time of 10.34 seconds.
