In just her second year of indoor track, Hannum produced dividends. She compiled county championships in the 300 with a time of 42.8 seconds, the 500 in 1 minute, 20.6 seconds and the 1,600 relay in 4:15.6. Before the county meet, Hannum had run the 500 just once. Coach Ed Purpura said he can't remember the last time the Falcons had a county champion in the 300.
Milliken was the jack-of-all-trades for the youthful Eagles. Although she didn't win a county crown, Milliken was a consistent point producer. She was second in the 1,600 (5 minutes, 28.1 seconds) and the 1,600 relay (4:16.9) and third in the 500 (1:23.6) and the 800 (5:28.1). Milliken, who has been named to the All-County team the last three winters, owns a share of every school relay record.
While Centrowitz was recovering on the sidelines, the Bruins leaned on Nagle to lead the way. The distance standout did not lose to a county opponent in the 3,200, eventually leading up to her win in 11 minutes, 49.5 seconds at the county championships. Nagle was second in the 800 at the county meet.

Newton had the unenviable task of challenging Centrowitz and Nagle in the 1,600 and 3,200, respectively. Newton held her own, finished third in the 1,600 (5 minutes, 32.4 seconds) and the 3,200 (12:08.4) at the county championships. She won the 3,200 at the regional meet (12:15.58) and placed second in the 1,600. Her times of 5:29.21 in the 1,600 and 12:04.77 in the 3,200 at the state championships were personal records.
Coach Charles Gross almost expected Offer to win the pole vault at the county championships - which she did with a vault of 9 feet, 0 inches. But Offer also competed in the high jump, clearing 4-8 and tying for second place. She was second in the pole vault (9-6) and third in the high jump (4-8) at the Class 3A-2A East region meet.
Glen Burnie, senior
Imagine what Robinson could have done if this hadn't been her first season of indoor track. Robinson made a splash by recording a winning time of 7.3 seconds in the 55 at the county championships. She was also a member of the 800 relay team that won in 1 minute, 53.9 seconds.
Thibodeau solidified the Bruins' strength in the distance events. A standout in cross country, she ran a leg of the 3,200 relay squad that won a county crown in 10 minutes, 14.4 seconds. Thibodeau also placed second in the 3,200 (12:06.4). At the region championships, she was fourth in the 3,200 (12:11.5), and the 3,200 relay team was second (10:55.1).
