ALBUQUERQUE — Doubling up on a shot put and javelin state title isn’t unheard of. Neither is winning both a javelin and 100 meter dash state championship.
But Chase Ealey did something that might never have been done before and, except for a potential repeat performance in 2012, might not be done for years to come when she pulled off a win in all three events this weekend.
Ealey, the rock star of the 2011 Los Alamos Hilltopper girls track and field team rocked the Class 4A state championship meet last weekend, picking up three individual wins and helping the Hilltopper girls 400 meter relay team to a state championship.
The junior finished as the high-point athlete at the state meet May 14, scoring 25 points, more than a third of the total for the Hilltoppers, who also picked up their third straight state team title.
Becoming the 4A girls high-point athlete was what she wanted from the get-go this season.
“That’s my goal. Emi’s been taking it from me,” she said, referring to the previous season’s high-point athlete Emi Weeks, a former teammate.
Along the way last weekend, Ealey became the top shot putter in state history and helped break the 400 meter relay state record that she helped set a year ago.
