Kemling sets personal record at state meet PDF Print E-mail

Perkins County’s Ashley Kemling finished 17th out of 123 girls entered in the Class D state cross country meet in Kearney on Friday, Oct. 23, with a time of 16:28.6, a career personal record.
Finishing just out of medals which are awarded to the top 15, the sophomore runner received praise from her coach, Paula Wurst.
“Ashley ran a really smart race, keeping her district competition in her sights, passing Jobi Hasenauer from Maywood (fourth at districts) and Gabby Mullanix from Dundy County (second at districts). She nearly caught North Platte St. Patricks’ Mandy O’Malley (D-5 district champ) at the finish,” said Wurst.
“Just to show how tough Class D competition is, if she had been running in Class C, her time would have been good for a sixth place finish,” said Wurst. “Her times were competitive with the best runners from North Platte in Class A and from McCook in Class B.”
North Platte’s Ashley Ogborn and McCook’s Chelsea Geschwentner had times nearly identical to Kemling’s.
“Ashley exhibited great motivation, toughness and team leadership throughout the season,” said Wurst.
