Course has meaning for Ashton

IOWA CITY– The Sept. 13 race had a little extra significance for Solon senior Abby Ashton. It was on the Ashton Cross Country Course at the University of Iowa. Brothers and 1960s Iowa runners Bill and Jim Ashton provided the lead gift for development of the course. “Bill is my Grandpa. Jim is my great-uncle, ”smiled Abby, when asked about the connection. She was also smiling because she was in the varsity mix this season; running fifth, sixth or seventh so far; realizing she has very good junior varsity runners pushing her for the spot.
