After winning one event and finishing third in another at last year's WPIAL Class AA championships, the question might have been "How much better can Emily Ledbetter get?"
The senior standout at Beaver has answered that question not with her words, but with her legs this spring, and her times in the 100, 200 and 400 have her looking like a WPIAL title contender in all three events.
Ledbetter might have been at her best at the MAC Championships on April 27 at Mars. Ledbetter was sensational, winning all three of her top events, while setting school and meet records in the 400. She also helped Beaver's 1,600 relay team place second. Her performance earned her track MVP honors.
Three days later, Ledbetter and her teammates competed in the Franklin Invitational. Ledbetter won the 100 and led the 1,600 relay team to a first-place finish, as well.
