Jackson has been one of the top distance runners in the state since her freshman season but this winter she took it to a completely new level. She first opened some eyes around the country when she ran a solo 4:52 1600 at the Southern Maryland Track Classic, but it was her US #1 and state meet record 4:45 that earned her national attention. The biggest question now will be if she can challenge 4:40 this spring.
