Alyssa Wise is the defending Class AA state champion in the 100 and 200 meters and showed she is still the fastest girl in the area.
Against a strong field Friday at the Baldwin Invitational, Wise pulled away from Hempfield’s Jasmine Jones and Vincentian’s Ally Bartoszewicz to win the 100 meters.
Wise, who will run at Pitt next season, won the 100 with a time of 12.01. Jones, who won the 200 and placed third in the 100 at last season’s WPIAL Class AAA championships, finished second Friday with a time of 12.23. Bartoszewicz, took third with a time of 12.25.
However, Bartoszewicz who beat Wise in the 200 meters at WPIALs last season, beat her again in the 200 Friday by 0.09 seconds. Jones took third in the event.
Wise earned two more silver medals as part of Washington’s 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 meter relay teams that finished runner-up to Hempfield and Latrobe, respectively.
