Ashley Click is a Junior at Alcoa High School. She has participated in AHS Athletics since her freshman year. Check out her player profile:
Alcoa High School: What sport do you play?
Ashley Click: Track
AHS: What made you choose this sport?
AC: It looks fun and interesting. It's not only the fact that you are compeating with others, you are competing with yourself.
AHS: That's cool. What do you do in track?
AC: I run middle/long distance.
AHS: To those who don't know what "middle/long distance" means, can you explain that?
AC: Middle distance is when you run an 800 meter (two laps around the track). Another thing is the 4x800 and that is where you have a team of 4 people from your team. Each of the 4 people run a 1600 meter distance (four laps, also known as a mile on a track course). There is also the 3200 meter distance (eight laps, known as two miles).
AHS: Wow! That is a lot of exercise. What distance do you excel at?
AC: I do best at the 1600 meter distance and the 3200 meter distance.
Here are the fun, random questions that we asked Ashley.
AHS: Favorite restaurant?
AHS: I feel like that is everyone's favorite place. Great food and price range. What is your favorite athlete role model?
AC: Wilma Rudolph
AHS: Great woman! She is a great inspiration to follow. Last question. If you had to chose between Green Lantern or Batman, who would it be?
Thanks for sharing Ashley! We wish you good luck on your track season in the spring!
