2020 All-Class Best: Ana Liese-Torian (So., Homewood-Flossmoor) 8.73
Key returners: Torian, Jasmyn Hunter (Sr., Homewood-Flossmoor), Tori Spagnola (Sr., West Aurora), Brooke Barkocy (Sr., Burlington Central), Mia Jackson (So., Peoria Richwoods), Macee Rivers (Jr., Belleville West), Ayah Mustafa (Sr., Homewood-Flossmoor), Hallee Thomas (Sr., Danville), Ali Rapps (Jr., Geneseo), Bria Armstrong (Sr., Chicago Heights Bloom), Sophia Barnard (Jr., Lincoln-Way East)
Outlook: A shortened 2020 season meant some inquiry needed to go back to 2019 in terms of adding depth to the mix. Torian and Hunter will lead the way during the indoor season if they choose. One would think that U of Minnesota signee Spagnola is staying in shape. If true, we must throw her name into the mix. Although many hurdlers in the southern sector of the state don't put a lot of stock into indoor track, let's not forget the name Macee Rivers. She was one of the best overall underclassmen of 2019.
