(Azusa, Calf.) Cornerstone senior Amy Boyer (Phoenix, AZ/Washington HS) travelled to Southern California for the heptathlon competition at the prestigious Mt. SAC relays hosted at Azusa Pacific University.
The three-time All-American in the multi-events completed the first of two days which included the 100 meter hurdles, high jump, shot put and 200 meters.
Boyer drew the dreaded lane one in the 100 meter hurdles, requiring her to run directly next to the inside rail of he track with spectators only feet from her left shoulder. Competing against the clock and the scoring tables, Amy ran a respectable 15.13. "Amy has posted national qualifying marks in the hurdles five times, so we expected a little more out of this race. She has it in her to go in the mid 14's but this was not the day." Cornerstone multi-event coach Paul Koutz said.
Her high jump efforts earned a 5'3 ¼" clearance. And she sent the shot put 32' 2".
After a personal record in the 200 meters the week prior at Adrian College, Amy ran a P.R. for the second consecutive week in the event by clocking 25.87. Her 200 meter time ranks fourth all-time on the Cornerstone outdoor performance list.
Boyer's total score after day one was 2,897 points which ranks her 14th out of the 37 competitors. Day two resumes at 11:00 a.m. PST for the final three events: long jump, javelin and 800 meters.
