Weissenbach runs 2nd fastest time in nation

By Alex Leichenger

Amy Weissenbach ’12 became the girls’ 800 meter state champion Saturday at Buchanan High in Clovis. Weissenbach ran a time of 2:07.52, passing Savannah Camacho of Templeton in the final 50 meters of the race.

“There was some determination and some sheer panic at the end,” Weissenbach told the Los Angeles Daily News after the race.

Weissenbach edged her previous personal best time of 2:08.34, set the previous week at CIF Masters. She also competed in the 1600 relay race at the state meet, helping the Wolverines to an eighth place finish.

Only a sophomore, Weissenbach became the second track and field state champion in school history, following the 3200 meter race title won by Lindsay Flacks ’04 in 2004.

Weissenbach finished fourth in the Division IV cross country state championship race in the fall.
