Honestly, I was surprised she got a pro contract . Her performances were okay her senior year but nothing amazing. My hunch was she got signed because the powers to be thought she had room to improve and her looks would draw an Instagram crowd. She has a nice Instagram following but she really hasn’t stepped up her game as a pro.
It doesn’t seem like Alice Wright has improved as a pro. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her go next.
Um except all of Wright’s personal bests have come in 2019 after she became pro. I definitely think she has more potential than Murphy and she has only been a pro for less than a year.
Alice Wright has accomplished a lot more than Murphy . She has gotten better on the track BUT I think Hoka wants her to be a cute version of Taylor and Bruce , kicking butt in the marathon . So far , she has not done much in the half marathon . Her performance at the NYC half was dreadful.
You guys on here are ridiculous. Alice Wright is having a GREAT first year as a pro. What did you expect? She's PRed in every event she's run essentially. That's awesome to pull off in your first year.
