A short note submitted by Merle Lynch of Cedaredge brought forth news of Paonia's Ashley Van Vleet's involvement with track at Idaho State University.
Paonia's Ashley Van Vleet wasted no time in her continued winning streak on the track. Along with a senior and two other freshmen, the Bengals, a D1 school in the Big Sky Conference, won the 400 x 4 relay at the Weber State Invitational last weekend. The winning time was 4:08.16.
Brianna Van Vleet, who signed a national letter of intent last fall, will join her sister (Ashley) at ISU next year.
