Four girls nationwide have combined to run times in the 1600m and 800m under seven minutes.
And leading that list is Chandler (AZ) senior Morgan Foster, whose 4:47.03 and 2:06.13 efforts currently rank US No. 3 and US No. 2 among the national leaderboards. But get this: Only Foster and Mount De Sales (MD) freshman Juliette Whittaker have 800m times under 2:10 to go along with sub-4:50 1600m efforts.
Meanwhile, two standouts beyond 1600m, Rockford's (MI) Ericka Vanderlende and Glenbard West's (IL) Katelynne Hart, sit at No. 3 and No. 4 on this list. If you combine Hart's 3200m time (9:59.57), she would be the fastest athlete at the combined distances in the country.
Check out the full list below.
