You can make a lot of different arguments for who's the best of the last 10 years, but Dior Hall had better be on your short list.
As tough as it was getting down to 10 in boys cross country, getting down to 10 in girls track was even more difficult.
You will find one distance runner on this list (and you can probably even guess who it is), but she stands out for being especially productive on the track. The rest are, well, sprinters, hurdlers, and field event types.
I have a bias toward keeping current high schoolers off this list, but there were two who would simply not be kept off the list.
In picking this list, my tendency was to lean a little in the direction of those who consistently came up big at the big meets. There are plenty of top athletes who did not make the top 10. But, I'll stand by these 10. Enjoy the memories.
