All In with Allison – The Alyssas

Written By Allison Schubert, Sports Columnist

As the old saying goes, all good things come in threes.

For the women’s track & field and cross country teams, those good things are the Alyssa’s: the trifecta of runners that led the women’s indoor track & field team to their third-straight River States Conference (RSC) championship title.

First up, Alyssa Campbell.

Campbell’s is a name we have talked about heavily in the sports section for the past two years, and rightfully so. She has certainly made a name for herself as a distance runner for the Pioneers.

Although she has many RSC Women’s Track/Cross Country Athlete of the Week honors just two years into her college career, her most recent of these honors came for the week on Jan. 20-26 leading up to the RSC Championship.

At the RSC Championship, Campbell was honored as the RSC Women’s Indoor Track Athlete of the Year for the 2019-20 season after leading the women’s team to victory.

Individually, Campbell placed first in the 3000-meter with a time of 11:48.23, first in the 5000-meter with a time of 18:43.93 and was a part of the winning 4×800 relay, which did so with a time of 10:35.33.

Also on that relay team? Our other two Alyssas: Alyssa Boyd and Alyssa Frausto.

Boyd, a junior, runs in both the mid-distance and distance categories for the Pioneers, and has done so in all of her three years at Point Park.

In addition to her part on the 4×800 relay team, Boyd also had a hand in the first-place finish of the distance medley relay, which finished with a time of 13:50, as well as an individual first place finish in the 800-meter race at 2:32.23.

Rounding out the trifecta is freshman Frausto, who is also early in making a name for herself within the Pioneers.

Not only was Frausto in both the 4×800 relay and distance medley relay, but she also claimed an individual second-place finish behind Boyd in the 800-meter race with a time of 2:39.49. Frausto also took fourth in the mile.

With few seniors leaving the women’s team this year, the Alyssa’s will, without a doubt, be leading this Pioneer team to their fourth-straight win in next year’s RSC Championship.

Now we just need another Alyssa in the field events and we’ll be set.
