Our number four returner, like many others on this list, also has an argument to be number one. Bethany Graham though has yet to have the chance to prove herself after two straight years of injuries during XC.
Finally healthy during track season though she was able to win five state titles (2 indoors/3 outdoors) and clock a 10:29 (3200) and 4:50 (1600). She enters this cross country season with a 18:05 best from last year run back in September.
If she can remain healthy you are talking about someone running in the low 17's this season.
