Myah Hicks (pictured right by John Herzog) is a junior at Thomas Edison High School who returned this year as one of the state's top returning half milers as she nearly pulled out the Group AAA state title last spring in the 800. Hicks has gone undefeated this spring in the 800 meter run with a most recent victory and season best performance of 2:14.01 at the MileStat.com Elite Track Classic. In her latest race, Hicks nearly joined the sub five minute club in the 1600 meter run as a runner-up at the Nike Spring Invite with a time of 5:01. Hicks returns back to Sports Backers Stadium this Friday as the top seed in the 800 meter run at the Southern Track Classic, which she hopes to run closer her to season goal of a 2:10.
