Chelsea Michigan’s Leila Wells Wins Division 2 100m Hurdles State Championship

Hamilton, MI. – After a tough season last year and not being able to compete in the High School Division 2 state track and field championships due to an injury to her ankle in the long jump, Chelsea’s Leila Wells was on a mission. She was doing everything she could to compete in this year’s finals and help her team. And she achieved her goal and then some.

On Saturday, June 1st at Hamilton High School the senior Wells took home her second state championship in the 100-meter hurdles with a personal record (PR) time of 14.92. It was a tough race with some very strong competition but she was able to get that foot over the finish line first, less than a half second ahead of the second-place finisher. And Wells was very proud!

After she finished she was surrounded by her teammates who were hugging her and celebrating her victory, including her freshman sister Aleeah who runs relays with her.

Wells has been running track since her sophomore year. And she has had an outstanding career. She also has been an all-state basketball player captaining her Bulldog team since her sophomore year. Wells has committed to continuing her hoops career at Virginia Tech and is excited to be a Hokie. She will be studying Biomedical engineering.

Wells has been a very vital part of the Bulldog girl’s track success over the past few years and helped her team to a tie for 12th place with 16 points out of 67 teams. She and her 4×100 relay team finished third on the day in pouring down rain just 1 second off from the first-place finishers.

“I’m very happy to be able to be here this year and compete and finish strong,” Wells stated happily after her victory. I’m proud to be a two-time state champ. This is amazing!”

Leila is the daughter of LeeRoy and Monique Wells.
