Talk about a multi-tasker. 

The Louisiana-based sprint-hurdle talent will follow-up her remarkable quadruple-gold winning performance from the West Coast AAU Junior Olympic Games in July at Satellite High School this week with another four events. 

Harris, a rising freshman, won her age group races in the 100m, 200m, 400m and 100mH, respectively, and hit PRs of 12.47 in the 100m and 14.42 in the 100mH. Not bad for a young athlete. 

So what can we expect for her encore? 

Probably much in the same.

She has opted for the 200mH instead of the 100m this time around. 

While Harris't best events are still being carved out, she has the ability to compete in any event she's entered in, and with personal best times of 14.42 in the 100mH, 24.79 in the 200m and 54.93 in the 400m, she's a dangerous threat to come away with at least one win -- especially considering she medaled in three events a year ago and came up just short of a 100mH title.
