Nolan, I highly respect all that you do at Milestat.....but with all due respect I think you missed a very important runner in your Milestates poll. Freshman Alli Crytser (Hanover) ran a 9 sec PR in the Class 4 1600 to place 2nd to an incredible runner (Ava Gordon). The top 3 girls beat the old meet record set by Libbie Davidson who was one of the all time greats in VA. Class 4 also claimed the top 3 spots of all classifications in the 1600. On top of that, Alli came back to win the 3200....as a freshman....among the LV powerhouse! According to the milestat database, Alli is the #2 ALL TIME freshman in the 1600 for VA and #31 ALL time in VA among all runners. Heck, I'd say the top 3 girls in the 1600 deserve a place in the poll. Full disclosure, Alli is my kid so I may be a bit biased :)

Funny you wrote this- I opened the poll wondering if there would be a “4A Underclassmen Girls” option. Those were some great races! Of course, there were lots of amazing performances...how do you narrow it down.

The more I think about it, the 1600 race itself should be a selection. A soph and two freshman all sub 5...all 3 beat the old meet record...all 3 were fastest in all classifications...all 3 girls did the 3200 double. Class 4 distance girls are killing it as a whole. And I agree...States were great from all classifications. I mean the class 5 girls 3200 was a great race and Bethany proved she is head and shoulders above all VA girls with her unattested 1600, 3200 double.
