6A Girls 1600 - Kate Murphy vs. Rachel McArthur Rivalry Renewed

While Kate Murphy has enjoyed great health and success for her junior year (NXN All-American, Millrose Mile champ & 4:41 record), her top competition in Rachel McArthur has had to deal with setback in injuries (both XC and indoor) this year. One of the state's best rivalries from a year ago had been fairly quiet until this 1600 state race with McArthur giving Murphy a great challenge down to the finish line with both timed at 4:51. Both under the 6A meet record.
