(STEELVILLE, Mo.) – Those who didn’t know the name Allie Gibbs before last weekend’s Class 2 track and field championships certainly know her now. The Steelville Cardinals‘ senior distance runner earned yet another state championship during one of the most exciting races of the entire weekend, when she beat out Brookfield’s Alex Sharp in the two-mile final race by just nine one-hundredths of a second. Gibbs said she led for most of the race, but had to keep pushing to earn her third-straight title.
