E2                   0.077 20.021  35.11     ****WINNER****  0.076  6.164 230.61

King has been consistently quicker than Ashley this weekend, but Ashley is usually very good at the starting line. Ashley shook violently on the launch and shut it off. King won easily and made it an "all-teens" semifinal round, but Hernandez will pick the lanes when they face off next round.
