Charlize Trinity-McKenzie, Cedarburg (WI): Wisconsin's top sprint star added to her collection of times on Saturday, scoring a new U.S. No. 1 time in the 600m with a performance of 1:31.65. She also went 2:54 in the 1K, scooping up a U.S. No. 13 time. 

Camryn Massey, Ashbrook (NC): She secured a U.S. No. 2 throw of 46-9.25 at the Fast Track Invitational on Saturday.

Alivia Williams, Montverde Academy (FL): She already owns the nation's top time in the 500m (1:13.11). But on Saturday, she added U.S. No. 6 marks in the 200m (23.98) and 400m (54.30) to add to her resume, all PRs. 

Kourtney Rathke, Peak To Peak Charter (CO): She pocketed a new U.S. No. 3 vault of 13 feet, 3.5 inches at the Colorado Mines HS Indoor series on Thursday, and then added a top 30 long jump for good measure, marking 18-9 in the pit.
