GOLIAD ATHLETE: Ashtin Zamzow
STARTING TIME: 6:45 p.m., Friday
FASTEST QUALIFYING TIME: 14.52 seconds by Goliad's Ashtin Zamzow
STATE RECORD: 13.23 by Dallas Bishop Dunne's Ashlee Williams in 2001
CLASS 2A RECORD: 13.84 by Lauren Bedrich of Rogers in 2013
PREVIEW: Texas A&M-bound Zamzow, who drew Lane 4, will try to become the first Goliad gold-medal winner since Amber Perry captured the Class 3A 400-meter dash in 2011.
Zamzow has the fastest qualifying time of the nine runners with a personal-best 14.52 at the Region IV-2A meet. Dallas Hampton Prep's Camri Austin (14.75) is the only other athlete in the race to have qualified below 15 seconds.
Breckenridge's Nocona Swindell (15.38) is the only returnee from last year's state meet. She finished fifth with a time of 15.42 in 2013.
The other qualifiers are Salado's Morgan Hill (15.07), Grandview's Jordan Nash (15.26), Garrison's Jasia Berry (15.36), Rice Consolidated's Riley Schneider (15.49), Newton's Jalia Franklin (15.71) and Littlefield's Ashley Dendy (15.80).
SYNOPSIS: A Zamzow victory would give the Tigerettes a big boost in their effort to win the team title.
