Track: Ringgold’s Cooper has an outstanding time in TSTCA win

Written by Brad Everett on .

Bailey Cooper had to have been happy with her performance last Saturday.

Not only did Cooper win the 100 hurdles title at the Tri-State Track Coaches Association Championships, but the Ringgold senior did it by running the fastest time by a WPIAL runner this season.

Cooper ran a blazing 14.78 to capture the gold medal in the meet held at West Mifflin. It was a down-to-the-wire finish, too, as runner-up Ashley Amato of Plum ran a 14.82, the second-fastest time in the WPIAL this spring.

To put Cooper's time into perspective, her mark would have been good enough to take second at last year's WPIAL Class AAA championships. Pine-Richland's Kat Quigley, who has since graduated, won the event with a time of 14.71. Cooper placed fifth at those championships after running a 15.47.
