She was injured most of the season and it's incredible how well she's come back. Won by a ton on Mt. Sac, then later ran 16:44 on that course again (only 2 seconds slower than as a freshman); at a very hot day on state ran 10 seconds slower, but beat the field by like 35 seconds.
I think she has improved substantially and that will be shown in track this year. Also, physically she has matured and is much taller and more developed - she has handled that well and it has only made her stronger, which is a great sign.
Great girl...awesome form, fierce competitor. So sportsmanlike when she finishes the line too. The real deal.
