Historians, who is the greatest female HS distance runner in US history? Could it already be Katelyn Tuohy?
I loved the NY Times article on Katelyn Tuohy and US female HS phenoms. In it, I was struck by this quote:

“She might be the best high school runner ever already,” said Jim Mitchell, a Bronxville High School coach who has guided dozens of elite female distance runners during his 40-year career, including, briefly, the last great phenom, Mary Cain.

Is that true? I assume not but don't really know enough about it.

Historians, can you list the greatest US HS distance runners ever and their credentials while in HS?
