Siefring then returned to the track once again a short time later to face Rice in the 300 meter hurdles.
This time Siefring willed her way to the top of the podium once again, winning the race in a time of 43.64 - with Rice finishing a close second at 43.88.
"Her form is so good," said Siefring of Rice. "She would go over the hurdles and be right with me, then I would pull ahead, then we would go over another hurdle and she would make it up again. My form could be a lot better than it is. I make up for it with speed. I could see her out of the corner of my eye (coming to the finish line)."
Siefring trailed by a split second heading toward the final hurdle, but her power from her intense training over the last year is what won her the race.
"I probably would have been happy (without winning the 300s)," Siefring said. "But, that is the race I always thought I would win. It took four years, but I did it."
And it made her final experience in a Covington uniform that much more rewarding.
"It has been a fun ride," she said. "That is what I wanted high school to be. Now I am ready for college and Akron."
To hopefully put her name in more record books.
