The Mountain View High standout was named to the 2017 MileSplit All-American high school distance first team thanks to her nation-leading mile time of 4 minutes, 41.80 seconds.
“These are the best of the best based on head-to-head racing, times, postseason performances and consistency,” MileSplit said on its website.
