Natrona's Alesha Lane has had a rough year health-wise as she has battled through a number of injuries in volleyball, basketball, and track. But that didn't stop her from winning a 4A state championship in the discus as she out-distanced Lauryn Love from Campbell County with a toss of 131-3. The weather conditions were far from premium for the event but Lane made her last throw count.

The day before, she took 3rd in the shot-put as her best throw measured 40-10.75. Love won that event throwing over 46 feet but Lane found a spot on the podium and that's what counts. Lane has been a shining example of perseverance and a state championship to prove it.
