25. Ava Parekh (Fr., Chicago [Latin])- NR

You have to respect a kid who has the fortitude to go and lead with Brooks Stromsland and Lianna Surtz the opening half-mile of the race. Parekh is mentally tough and for the first half of the 2A race, she held her own until struggling mightily over the final half mile and losing some ground. Even her teammate Marianne Mihas passed her. Still, the consolation prize was a good one for Ava who placed 4th in 17:08.
