Alyssa Leister did more than win two gold medals at the state track and field meet held at Mike A. Myers Stadium, University of Texas at Austin on May 9 and 10.
Leister said, “I gave my best. I am excited about the record. I can leave with the medal and the record.”
Alyssa’s first event was in the long jump. Of the six jumps Leister scratched four times but won the gold with a jump of 17-0.25 and set a new conference record.
“My mark was not on during the run throughs. Coach [Carlton Williams] told me not to worry, that everything was under control,” she said. “I wanted to break the record and I was hoping for another 18.”
