Ariah, from Wakefield, led the state in the 400 dash, ranking 30th nationally. Alexis, from Apex, led the state in the 100 and 200 dashes, ranking 29th and 35th nationally. Tyler, from Dudley, led the state in the 300 hurdles, ranking 9th nationally; she was second in the state in the 200. Mollie, from Clayton, led the state in the 100 hurdles, ranking 9th nationally.

Not really a fair category placing sprinters and hurdlers together. I would have preferred two separate categories. Just my opinion....

@wncpreptrack If you consider the winter season, I think Graham is a lock. But she struggled with some injuries during the spring and wasn't able to perform as well, and I think that leaves the door open a little bit.

@coach_eazy Hurdles alone? Such a small category, only two events. Plus, that might rule out someone like Tyler, who did both (or historically, athletes like Gabby Mayo or Spencer Adams). Great hurdlers are also often great sprinters.

One last note on this category: I have no doubt in my mind that if Tyler Brockington had not struggled with a hamstring injury early in the outdoor season, forcing her to drop the 100 hurdles for the season, this would be a completely different picture. 24.09 in the 200, 41.81 in the 300H, AND sub-14 in the 100 hurdles (very likely, given how fast the 4A state final was)? Remember, Tyler was 3rd in the state in the 55H, only 0.04 behind leader Alexis Perry.
