High School Girls' 800m, Finals 1 Apr 18, 2019

Mount De Sales freshmen Juliette Whittaker continues to shock us all after each race this spring. It is about time that the rest of the nation takes notice of this rising talent. Not to be outdone by running the nation's third fastest performance of 4:48 in the 1600 meter run two weekends ago at the Pikesville Track Classic, the freshmen phenom next tackled the national rankings in the 800 meter run on Thursday at the Scorpion Classic held at Oakland Mills High School in Columbia, Maryland.In her only race of the day, Whittaker made it a swift one rolling thru the first 400 meters in 62 seconds before finishing off with a 65 second last lap to post the fifth fastest 800 meter time in the country this season at 2:07.95. The time is easily the fastest time by a ninth grader similar to her 1600 season best and also ranks second fastest all-time in Maryland high school history behind only Nyjari McNeil at 2:07.34.It was a great day for the entire Whittaker household as her older sister Bella also won the 400 meter dash (56.04) and 200 meter dash (24.77) with meet record and personal best performances, which rank her No. 2 in both events in the state of Maryland currently.Their distance medley relay is ranked among the top five in the country after a 11:55 effort last week and could drop the time even further in the coming weeks and possibly end of season at New Balance Nationals.
