“It feels good; I've been working hard for this for four years,” Cashdollar said after her win in the 800. “To run the 800 and finish first and second with my teammate Maddie (Miller) feels good. I'm looking forward to the competition at DePaul, but also just having my teammates pushing me every single day.”

Cashdollar also led off the Tiger 4x400 relay team at the end of the meet; EHS finished third in the event. “To win the 800 was what I wanted to do today, and to run the time that I wanted (Cashdollar won the 800 in 2:17.20); 2:17 by myself means I have so much more left in competition.

“I'm always going to remember these years of my life, no matter what happens and to be successful means a lot to me – I've worked so hard over the years.”
