Emily Lelis is a three-time PIAA Class AA gold medalist in the hurdles (twice in the 300 and once in the 100) and she beat a solid field Friday at the Butler Invitational.
Lelis ran a 14.61 in the 100 meter hurdles, beating Pine-Richland’s Kat Quigley (14.81) and Shaler’s Tori Soeder (15.19).
Soeder finished third in the WPIAL Class AAA championships last season in the 100 hurdles, and Quigley finished sixth. Quigley (14.4) and Soeder (14.6) own the two fastest times in the 100 hurdles this season.
Lelis’ best time this season is 14.46. She ran a 14.18 in the 100 hurdles at last season’s PIAA meet, which was good for second in Class AA.
