Today we rank he returning class of 3A girls, one that will look much different as class realignment this year will take many of the top runners and teams from last year out of 3A. Nevertheless this list remains one with many big names, including last year's freshman phenom Haley Cummins who ran away with the state title last November. The Northern girls look poised to defend their 2016 state championship, with two girls in the top ten and two more just missing the cut.

1. Haley Cummins (Sophomore, C. Milton Wright)

2. Abby Sweeney (Senior, Northern-Calvert)

3. Emily Beyer (Senior, Mount Hebron)

4. Claudia Dolan (Junior, Northern-Calvert)

5. Alison Betler (Junior, Centennial)

6. Annabel Cortez (Junior, Reservoir)

7. Emily Imhof (Junior, Great Mills)

8. Cora Blount (Junior, Centennial)

9. Rebekah Cross (Sophomore, Bel Air)

10. Jaqui Sheedy (Junior, Towson)
