Nadhia Campos heads to State for the first time, and yet she'll toe the starting line as the favorite. The Vanguard School freshman won five out of six races this season, with her only loss coming to runners from larger classifications. She recently ran 18:13 to win the 2A Region 2 in a personal best, meaning she's peaking right on time. 

Though, the freshman will have competition.

And it'll likely come from Zaila SmithThe Buena Vista senior dominated the 2A Region 3 championships, running 18:37 - a PR. She's won five of seven races, with one loss coming from runners from larger classifications, and the other a runner-up finish to Campos.
