Take a quick (and slightly bumpy) runner-presepctive tour around the most famous course in North Carolina, and maybe in the entire Southeast.
Ashley Brasovan is one of a handful of Florida athletes to qualify for Foot Locker Nationals in San Diego two times while at Wellington High School. Her time of 17:07 set in 2007 as a junior is the fifth fastest ever by a Floridian at Foot Locker South. Brasovan ran in one of the best Foot Locker South races for Floridians when she finished sixth behind Brittany Koziara (4th), Emile Amero (3rd), and Kayla Hale (2nd). As a senior, she was 4th earning her spot among the nation's best.
