Micah Meekins began her track career at Marriotts Ridge High School as a freshman in the spring of 2013. In her first season, she qualified for the state championships in the 100, where she would finish 13th in the prelims. From then on, she only got better. As a sophomore she would finish sixth in the 200 meter dash at the state championships, and ran the leadoff leg on the fourth-place 4x400 team. She ran indoor track her junior year for the first time and took a huge step forward, finishing second at the state championships in the 300.
Meekins is a sprinter but has the range to go anywhere from a 55 to a 500, and she showcased that range at the 2015 outdoor state championships. She swept the 100, 200, and 400 meter dash, all in one day, earning the first three state titles of her career. She was the first girl in the 2A classification to win all three at the state championships since North East's Dnique Phillips did it in 2012. After the season she competed at the AAU Junior Olympics, clocking a blazing fast 200 time of 24.36. As a senior, she captured two more state championships (indoor 300, outdoor 400) while dropping her personal best time in the 400 to 55.63. She competed at New Balance Outdoor Nationals multiple times, including running in the championship 400 in her senior season.
