Hall of Fame induction: 2015
Chelley was a huge force in the sprinter/hurdler/jumper world of Delaware track & field in the early 90’s. She won national championships in the 100m HH and the triple Jump (setting an age-group national record in the triple jump), placed second in the high and triple jumps in other national meets, and placed third in the 100m HH and earned the good sportsmanship award at the Keebler International Invitational. She set multiple state records in the triple jump and the high jump and was nationally ranked (top 10) in the 100mHH, 300mhurdles, and the triple jump for high school girls.
In 1992, running for Glasgow as a junior, she won four events indoor – 55m, 55m HH, 300mH, and TJ – and was the overall Grand Prix Winner and the State Indoor MVP. She was also Outdoor State Champion that year in four events – 100m HH, HJ, TJ and sprint relay– and the State Outdoor MVP. In 1993, she repeated these accomplishments as a senior, winning four events at both the indoor and outdoor state championships and was again selected as both the indoor and outdoor state MVP. In all, Chelley won 17 state championship titles. She was the Gatorade Delaware Girl’s Track and Field Athlete of the Year in 1992 and 1993.
