ALBUQUERQUE — It will be a long time before Los Alamos High School will see another athlete the like of Chase Ealey. If ever.
It will certainly be a long time before the Hilltoppers will have an athlete as successful.
Ealey, a two-sport star for the Hilltoppers, put an exclamation point on a career filled with highlights last week at the Class 4A track and field championship meet. For the second straight year, Ealey won three individual state titles and had a hand in taking a pair of relay state titles.
Ealey picked up 26 points, once again becoming the top-scoring athlete in 4A, topping her total of 23.5 one year earlier.
On her way, she won the shot put and javelin for the second straight year Friday, then Saturday picked up her fourth straight 100 meter dash title.
The 100 meter championship this year was the sweetest victory for Ealey in a career where she garnered eight individual state titles and was part of six winning relay teams.
“I’m shaking, I’m so excited,” said Ealey following her fourth consecutive state 100 meter title, this one setting a new best 4A time of 12.35 seconds. “I was so scared. I wanted it, but I didn’t think I’d get the record.”
