Brittany Goncar profiles Beaver's trio of standout 400-meter runners.
"Beaver Area reaped the benefits of top talent this year.
Sprinters Ruthe Neeley, Emily Ledbetter and Sarah Johnson take the top three spots on the Class AA Honor Roll list in the 400-meter dash.
All three athletes qualified to compete in the 400 at the WPIAL AA Southern Qualifier last Tuesday. Only Neeley competed in that event, however. She ran a state-qualifying time of 58.28 seconds for first place. A junior from Brighton Township, she also placed second in the 800.
Neeley will move on to defend her 400-meter title in the WPIAL Class AA championships today at Baldwin."
