The Top 5 Girls To Watch Friday At The Meet Of Champions

Ava Parekh (Jr., Chicago Latin)-

Event: 800m

Overview: The undisputed #1 trackster in the state drops down to her tertiary event- the 800m. However, please do not take her lightly here. Parekh is rated third in the state at 2:14.92 and certainly capable of beating the field. After two awesome performances in the mile and two-mile on the season, don't be surprised if Parekh gets inside 2:12. Even if she doesn't, this race comes at a good time after tons of high level competition. Call it recovery race week.
