MileSplit All-American Team - Girls 300/400m Hurdles

Two freshmen have splashed onto the national scene in the hurdles this year to become among the best in the country. Many are well aware of New Balance Nationals champion and US Junior Nationals runner-up Sydney McLaughlin (See our featured piece on McLaughlin here), but another great young talent is found in California in Piedmont Hills rising sophomore Reonna Collier. Collier won the CIF Finals state title in the 300 meter hurdles with a US leading time of 40.90 and also faired well at the US Junior Nationals in the 400 meter hurdles in making the finals and finishing 4th with a time of 58.55.
