Last year's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association high jump indoor champion (6 feet, 2 inches) returns to the Cardinals for his senior season. He also finished sixth in the triple jump as a junior.
Clark is coming off an outdoor season in which he notched a personal-best 14-foot pole vault — good enough for a 4A state championship. Over the summer, he participated in the Down Under International Sports meet, where he took home a gold medal with a four-meter vault.
Hereford, hurdles, senior
As a junior, he won an indoor county title and 2A state championship in the 55-meter hurdles, running a 7.89 at the latter meet. After winning outdoor state titles in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles, he's one of the top returning athletes from Baltimore County.
Davis is the MIAA defending champion in pole vault for both indoor and outdoor track. He should be a threat during both seasons this year.
River Hill, distance, senior
Heydrick did not lose in the 800- or 1,600-meter runs last indoor season. During the outdoors season, he finished third at the Pikesville track classic in an otherwise perfect year. Heydrick is also coming off county and region cross country titles this fall.
Aside from winning 3A Central regional championships in the 800 and 1,600 last year, the returning All-Metro first-team runner finished second in the 800 at states. He did collect victories in both events at the Baltimore County championship meet.
The returning All-Metro first-team selection lost one race during last year's regular season. He ultimately took second in the Class 3A 55-meter dash, 55 hurdles and 300 at states. He won all three events at the 3A Central meet, as well as the Baltimore City championships.
Century, vault, senior
Another returning All-Metro first-team selection, Neral was the 2A state champion in the pole vault (15 feet). He also collected victories in the same event at the Carroll County and 2A West meets.
Roberts is the MIAA defending indoor 55-meter champion (6.54). He also had his hand in the championship 4x200 team. For outdoor, he is the two-time defending MIAA champion in the 100 (10.75) and 200 (21.6).
Dulaney, distance, junior
He's coming off a 4A North title and second-place finish at states during cross country, but Walz should also be a force this year during indoor. He has regional championships in the 1,600 and 3,200 from last outdoor season, and ran a personal-record 9:21.83 in the latter event at states.
