Current USA High School Girls Track and Field Records Through July 2009 – Part 2

Jan 18 2022 Published by dayat under Uncategorized

Here are the current USA High School Girls Track and Field Records through July 2009. This list gives every high school runner, jumper and thrower an idea of what it takes to become a world-class athlete at the prep level.

Some of these record-holders have just completed their senior season and are likely headed for college competition somewhere. They include middle distance runner Jordan Hasay, steeplechaser Shelby Greany, high jumper Toni Young, and discus thrower Anna Jelmini.

The list of names from the past and their performances is amazing, and they have become household names in the track and field community worldwide. They include Allyson Felix, Sanya Richards, Kim Gallagher, Polly Plumer, and more recently Christine Babcock.
