In addition to running strongly throughout the regular season, Griffith really came on in the bigger races. She won the Baltimore County title, Class 4A North region and then the Class 4A state title race.

Griffith closed the season with one of her best performances, winning the tough Class 4A state championship race in dominant fashion, beating Nora McUmber of Bethesda-Chevy Chase by almost 26 seconds.

"She is simply amazing, and that is a strong comment based on the athletes I had the opportunity to coach," said long-time Dulaney coach Chad Boyle.
