Prince George's All-County Indoor Track: Girls

Runner of the Year
Amirah Johnson, Roosevelt
Just a sophomore, Johnson may be the premier girls' runner in the state. She won the 800 and 1,600 titles at the 4A state meet. Johnson ran the state's fastest times this season in 800 (2:14.90), 1,000 (2:52.70) and 1,600 (5:06.42) and should continue that pace through the outdoor campaign.

Field Athlete of the Year
Saniel Atkinson, McNamara
Gifted with athleticism, Atkinson continues to display why she is among the area's best. She has the state's best mark this season in the high jump (5 feet, 9 inches) and triple jump (40 feet, 4.25 inches). Atkinson also has the fourth-best long jump mark (18 feet, 2.25 inches) this season.

Coach of the Year
Walter Cross, Oxon Hill
Cross helped build one of the state's best programs and the Clippers' performances show it. Oxon Hill was second in the 4A state meet and took second in a tough 4A East Region. The Clippers captured their second consecutive county championship and will be a contender during the outdoor season.

First Team
Aurieyall Scott, Roosevelt
The junior was the fastest girl in the state, as her 7.03-second performance at the 4A East Region meet was tops during the indoor campaign. Scott won the state 55 title and regional titles in the 55 and 300.

Lorraine Graham, Flowers
Graham may be the county's most versatile runner, but excels at the hurdles. She won the state 4A 55-meter hurdles championship, and also won the event at the 4A East Region championships.

Doris Anyanwu, Roosevelt
The senior won the 500 at the 4A East Region meet to go along with third-place finishes in 300 at the 4A East Region and 4A state championships.

Dionna Hayes, Seton
Hayes finished second at the Private and Independent Schools championships in the 55 and took third at the Virginia Tech Invitational, where her time of 7.12 seconds was seventh-best in the state this season.

Cassaundra Bouldin, Bowie
Bouldin finished second in the 55 hurdles at the 4A state championships. She also took second at the county championships and holds the fastest 60 hurdles time in the state this season (9.10 seconds).

Jameice DeCoster, Seton
DeCoster won the 300 dash at the Private and Independent Schools Invitational and finished third in the 300 at the Virginia Tech Invitational (40.11 seconds), the sixth-best mark in the state.

Monica Mason, McNamara
Mason proved one of the best girls' mid-distance runners this season, finishing third in the Private and Independent Schools championships and fourth in the 500 at the same meet.

Afia Charles, Roosevelt
Charles won the 4A state title in the 500. She also finished third at the 4A state meet in the 300, and her 500 time of 1:14.69 at the Virginia Tech Invitational is second-best in the state this season.

Deseree' King, Oxon Hill
On a given afternoon, King could win the 500 or 800. She finished second in both events at the 4A state championships, and took second and third, respectively, in the 500 and 800 at the 4A East Region.

Teshika Rivers, Roosevelt
Rivers missed most of the season with a nerve injury, but it mattered little. She won the girls' 3,200 at the 4A East Region meet and finished second in the 3,200 at the 4A state championships.

Shantae Boney, Largo
Boney was second in the 55 hurdles and the high jump at the 3A state championships. The senior won the high jump at the county championships, clearing 5 feet, 6 inches.

Adenike Pedro, Seton
Pedro won the long jump at the Private and Independent Schools championships, and her 19-feet, 1-inch mark at the Virginia Tech Invitational was the best in the state this season.
