All of Allen County knows what Elysia Kunkler brings to the track and jumping pits.
Last spring as a junior, Kunkler qualified for three events in the state track meet. The Fillie track and field star medaled in two events, finishing second in the 100-meter hurdles and fifth in the long jump. She also was part of the 4×100-meter relay that finished 15th.
