Tarynn Barker

North Carroll

Senior Barker, a runner-up at the Class 3A state meet, powers a Panthers squad that captured the team championship last fall.

Laura Drossner

Bryn Mawr

Only a sophomore, Mid-Atlantic Private Schools titlist could challenge teammate Nyam Kagwima for the No. 1 spot.

Rebecca Funk

Severna Park

Funk, a senior, recorded the fourth-best time among this season's crop of area runners at Hereford last year.

Laura Garrett

Mount de Sales

Can Garrett, who placed third at the Mid-Atlantic Private Schools Invitational, avoid the dreaded sophomore slump?

Nyam Kagwima

Bryn Mawr

Kagwima, a junior, has the tools to restage a run to the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland crown.

Cori Koch


Defending Class 2A state champ is expected to lead the Generals to greater success in her senior season.

Anastasia Mukhina


Second only to teammate Koch at the state, regional, and county championships, fellow senior Mukhina gives the Generals a legitimate one-two punch.

Tricia O'Connell


The senior is the Comets' best hope to break up Towson's monopoly atop the Class 2A standings.

Carrie Selmer


If the senior can repeat her championship performance at the Class 1A state meet last fall, the Gladiators could challenge reigning Class 2A state champ Middletown.

Tenke Zoltani


As long as the two-time All-Metro senior can avoid the injury bug, the Lions are a serious threat to claim the Class 3A state title.
