Any predictions to as what the Simi Valley frosh will run over 1600 and 3200 meters this spring? I say 4:51 and 10:09!

You know, the fastest girl in the country? Most people who only focus on FL/NXN for national results may have missed her. She crushed eveyone at CA state and then switched her focus to track.

Could break 10:00 as a 9th grader!

10:23 and 4:58. I don't think she is as good over the shorter distances.

she's not the fastest girl in the country. Even is she ran 10:00 she wouldn't be. Aisling Cuffe ran 9:20 for 3k last year and by all indication she'se much fitter now than she was then. baxter is very good, she is not as fast as cuffe.

"She is not as fast as Cuffe."

You can't say that, we never saw the two run together. For all we know, Sarah Baxter may be capable of going even faster than she actually did last fall. She did run 16:41 at Mt. Sac and 16:56 at Woodward almost on her own.

The clock doesn't like her freshman record at Mt. Sac and her #3 all-time performance were indeed super impressive. At Woodward, only Julia Stamps (16:43) and Amber Trotter (16:55) have run faster than Baxter.

And picked people off who were training for bigger events? No one could keep up with Baxter (she regularly won by large margins) so I don't see how she "picked people off!"

Cuffe is NY fast. Baxter is CA fast. CA>NY. Baxter=fastest girl in the country.

NY is overrated.

you people are dumb. until baxter can prove herself to be faster than cuffe, no one cares. cuffe is the national champion with the best 3k/3200 prs out there.

Who cares.
Stamps and Trotter aren't exactly poster girls for long-term development in the sport.
When the G9er actually survives HS and is still either in the sport and/or improving, then and only then will it have any real significance (other than to her personally). I wish people would stop hyping these phenoms.
Maybe she'll be another Hasay, but even with her, unless she gets to a truly world-class level (like beating the best africans) then she's just another US burnout.

You can't say Baxter is better than Cuffe because true, she wasn't in those big meets, but you also can't say she's slower because we've never seen the two race each other.

She just ran a solo 10:43, running much of the race in lane 2 or 3. The meet organizers decided to combine all levels of the 3200 into one race, so 75+ girls. Great performance under the circumstances! www.royalresults.com/liveresults.
