Ealey appears in Sports Illustrated

Los Alamos standout track and field athlete Chase Ealey was featured in Sports Illustrated magazine’s “Faces in the Crowd” section last month.
Ealey, who will be a senior at Los Alamos High School this year, appeared in the June 20 issue of the magazine. She was highlighted for her performance at the Class 4A state track meet in May.
At that meet, Ealey won three events — shot put, javelin and the 100 meters — and helped the 400 meter relay team to a victory as well.
Ealey finished with 25 points to lead all athletes in the girls 4A competition.
