McDonogh, sophomore

A versatile performer who should help the Eagles fill some holes, Hatcher won in the 300 meters at the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland championship meet last winter. She also ran on McDonogh's 1,600-meter relay team.

McDonogh, junior

Like Hatcher, Hayes should contribute to the Eagles in multiple events. At last winter's IAAM title meet, she placed second in the 300-meter dash behind Hatcher, and she can also run in the 500 meters and 1,600-meter relay.

Allison Krein

River Hill, sophomore

Recently, Krein has developed into a strong distance runner for the Hawks. She ended a solid cross country season with a second-place finish in the Class 3A state championship meet and should spark River Hill this winter.

Rachel Yep

Mount Hebron, senior

Quietly emerging as one of the area's better distance runners, Yep finished sixth in the state in the Class 3A state meet in cross country last month. Yep ran to a third-place finish in the 3,200 meters at the Class 3A state championship meet in February.
