Top Maryland High School Performances At 2017 AAU Junior Olympics

Lacey Eden

One of the top freshman girls who burst onto the scene this past year, Eden was the fastest miler in her class during the indoor season. She backed up her winter performances this past week by placing second in the 15-16 year old division of the 1500 in 4:50.24. Converted to a full 1600, it would have been the fastest by a freshman this outdoor season. She was not done, however - she came back to run away with the 15-16 year old 3000 meter run; her time of 10:41.33 was nearly 30 seconds faster than the next-fastest competitor.
