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
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.
