October 8, 2008 By John Nepolitan -- Early in the 2007 cross country season Chelsea Ley (Kingsway HS / NJ) was one of the dominating runners in New Jersey, but at the State Meet of Champs had to settle for 3rd place. To get ready for the 2008 season and get revenge on the two runners that beat her, Ley logged week after week of 85 miles building a solid base. The hard work paid off in her first real all out effort, the Shore Coaches Invitational at the state meet site Holmdel Park 5000 meter layout. Going out hard and pushing all the way to the finish, Ley would go on to win the “C” race in 17:44 for the 3rd fastest time ever and the best in 25 years.

For her outstanding performance, Chelsea Ley, has been named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week for the week of October 5th.

Athletes Only magazine will recognize an outstanding performance each week by American high school and college athletes during the 2008 - 2009 school year
