2019 State Champion: Kenli Nettles (Sr., Arthur) 14.29
Key Returners: Nettles, Chloe Moyer (Jr., Meridian), Gracie Jessup (Jr., Catlin [Salt Fork]), Megan Williams (So., Newark), Jalynn Wood (So., DuQuoin), Bailey Harsy (Sr., DuQuoin), Lauren Friess (Sr., Johnston City), Hannah Jones (Sr., Knoxville), Katie Moore (Jr., Red Hill), Capria Brown (Sr., Danville Schlarman)
Outlook: Nettles is one of the most diverse athletes in the nation and is destined to be a standout heptathlete on the next level. This is arguably her best event on the docket as she is the state's second-best hurdler in the state, regardless of classification. The 2020 season is looking extremely bright for Nettles.
Chloe Moyer and Gracie Jessup are also some of the state's top returners vying for top honors all season. Look for sub 15.50 performers Hannah Jones, Katie Moore, Jaylinn Wood, Bailey Harsy, and Lauren Friess to add depth.
