2012-13 girls indoor track and field performers to watch

Cross Country Running

Cindy Alms

Reservoir, senior

Already holding several school records, Alms will be spending a lot of time running the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races this winter. She also ran on the Gators' cross country team that won the Class 3A state championship this fall.

Sarah Ashwood

Hereford, junior

She's part of a very deep Hereford team that will attempt to repeat as Class 3A state champions. Ashwood's victory in the 1,600 meters in February played a big role in the Bulls' team title at the state championship meet. She also finished in fourth place in the 800-meter race.

Erin Causey

Hereford, junior

Causey is a distance runner who can help the Bulls score points in different events, and she is coming off a solid cross country season that ended with a fourth-place finish in the Class 3A state title race.

Abby Culp

Manchester Valley, senior

The leader for the Mavericks in track and cross country, Culp finished second in the Class 1A cross country state championship this fall. She also ran to a second-place finish in the 3,200-meter race at the Class 1A state championship meet last winter.

Ellie Gonzalez

Catholic, junior

For the second straight year, Gonzalez won the IAAM title in cross country. Her time of 18 minutes, 19 seconds topped second-place finisher Hannah Mansbach of Glenelg Country by 40 seconds. Gonzalez also won the IAAM title in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters last winter -- setting meet records in both races.

Isabel Griffith

Dulaney, junior

Last winter, Griffith placed second in the 3,200-meter race in the Class 4A state championship meet. She finished fourth in the Class 4A cross country race last month, the top runner from the Baltimore area with a time of 19 minutes, 41.4 seconds.

Lakin Hatcher

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.

Sidney Hayes

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.
