Douglas Qualifies Twice to Lead Republic Contingent to State

Jasmyn Douglas will be right in the thick of things during the two-day state track meet in Jefferson City this week. Douglas qualified in two events: first as part of the 800-meter relay, and then again as an individual in the 800-meter run. Those were the only two events in which Republic qualified participants for state.

Delaney Smith, Jazzy Kirby, and Jade Kirby join Douglas on the 4x800m team. They qualified with a time of 10:19.28, finishing fourth, with Douglas cruising on the final lap to reserve energy for her solo run later in the day.

In that race, Douglas finished second, just behind Brocklyn Barber of Ozark, whom Douglas had beaten last week to win the district championship. This time, the two runners were separated by just three-tenths of a second, with Barber at 2:21.89 and Douglas at 2:22.19.

They ran the race in a strong wind that was in their faces on the backstretch and at their backs heading toward the finish. “It was horrible,” Douglas said of the wind afterward. “I was running down that last and she tried to pass me, and… it took literally everything to go. It was so bad.”

Douglas and Barber will meet again at the state meet after two close races during the past two weeks. Douglas says having a close competitor makes her better.

“It helps me a ton, whether she’s in front of me or behind me, just knowing she’s right there and you have to give it 100 the whole time,” she said.
