2007 Footlocker Quick Girl Recap: Ashley Brasovan Wins
by: LetsRun.com
December 8, 2007
*Boys Recap Here

Jordan Hasay, the 2005 champ, took things out hard and immediately opened up a gap on the field in the first 1000m.

Hasay went through the mile in a quick 5:18 and a chase pack consisting of all the other regional winners was 20 or 30 meters behind her.

Hasay increased her lead during the second mile. Would she be able to run away from the incredibly strong girls field (Claire Durkin won her regional by an incredible 42 seconds) or was her opening pace too much?

Slowly, the chasers began to eat into Hasay's lead over the last mile. A new face, Florida's Ashley Brasovan was leading the charge. Brasovan had dominated every race she ran this year (including beating last year's champ Kathy Kroeger at Great American by 42 seconds) until the Regional where she was 6th.

Once Brasovan caught Hasay it was all over. Hasay put up a fight to try and stay with Brasovan but there was no way she was going to do it after fading off the fast early pace.

Brasovan got the win in 17:20 and was followed by the last 2 national champs, Kroeger and Hasay (who gutted it out the last stretch to get 3rd). Northeast champ Neely Spence, daughter of 1991 World Champs Bronze Medallist in the marathon Steve Spence, was 4th, followed by Midwest champ Claire Durkin.

The top 3 have now all won a national championship and are all back next year to wage an unprecedented battle for true supremacy.
