4 Maryland High School Athletes Become NCAA All-Americans

The 2024 NCAA Outdoor Championships were held in Eugene Oregon this past weekend. While many former Maryland athletes competed at the Championships, four walked away as All-Americans and two of those 4 became nationals champions! All 4 of the athletes below have hit the USA Olympic Trials automatic standard and would presumably be competing in Eugene in a few weeks, trying to earn a spot to Paris. 

Juliette Whittaker (Mt. De Sales / Stanford) - High School Profile

Arguably the best Maryland distance runner ever, Whittaker won the 800m race with a time of 1:59.61. She will have a good chance of challenging for top 3 at the trials in a few weeks. Her time is the 5th fastest in the USA this year. 

Caleb Dean (DeMatha / Texas Tech) - High School Profile

Dean became the National Champion in the 400m Hurdles with a time of 47.23. Dean ran for DeMatha during his high school years and ran for the University of Maryland for a few years before transferring to power house Texas Tech. His time is the fastest 400m Hurdle time in the NCAA this season and the 2nd fastest in the USA. 

Isabella Whittaker- (Mt. De Sales / Penn) - High School Profile

Isabella placed 5th in the 400m dash and was the first finisher not wearing an Arkansas jersey. She had an incredible 4 years at Mt. De Sales and an even more impressive college career at Penn. Her time is the 6th fastest in the USA this year. 

Judson Lincoln IV (Oakland Mills / Virginia Tech) - High School Profile

Lincoln placed 5th in the 400m dash with a time of 45.31. Only a sophomore, I am sure he has National championship hopes down the road. His PR is 44.55 is the 6th fastest in the USA this year.
