In the photo below taken by Alex Vehr of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Dustin signals his status as the best ever Cincinnati prep runner. Angel Gazaway, Princeton Princeton senior Angel Gazaway won the meter hurdles by a half second Saturday night recording a time of Gazaway also placed seventh in the state in the hurdles This was Gazaway's first year at state, and she credits first year coach Darren Braddix with pushing her to succeed at this level.
She's slightly ahead of last year's times and that spells trouble for her opponents. Karmen is having another fantastic season and that's why she's my pick to win back-to-back titles.
Karmen has four wins so far in and will be aiming for a fifth this Saturday Katelyn Stapleton, freshman, West Liberty-Salem - I watched Katelyn run the first race of her high school career back in August at the Bob Schul Invitational in West Milton. Fans could immediately tell she was talented and bold, taking the lead from a trio of Minster girls in the opening mile. Katelyn expended a lot of energy early and almost didn't finish, eventually stumbling across the line in 20th place.
It's amazing how much a runner can mature in a couple months. So, she'll be running the same course two weeks in a row and she's a much smarter runner now than back in August. She's also too much of a competitor not to go for the win and I fully expect to see that on Saturday. Katelyn has been running up front all season and you can bet she will at Cedarville Addie Engel, sophomore, Catholic Central - Addie has been a star since she stepped on the high school cross country course her freshman year and won three big regular season meets.
Then post season rolled around and skeptics asked Addie who? Folks quickly found out who Addie was when she won the southwest regional meet, then put an exclamation point on her season at state with a personal record That time was one of her slower performances this season, but ahead of where she was last year at this time.
I believe Addie is one of three girls with a legitimate shot at winning the 3.
For a school that doesn't have enough runners to qualify as a team, a competitive teammate is always a good thing and that's what you get with this combo. While Karmen is winning races, Skipp has been following in her footsteps.

Maybe stepping on her heels is a better way to put it. Skipp has one win this year, the Tri-Village Invitational in late September.
Last week she finished 2nd at the CCC in a personal best I expect Skipp to be in that second wave of runners this Saturday. However, I wouldn't be surprised if she decided to follow in the shadow of her teammate either.
Skipp has nine Top 10 finishes already this year and should get another one at districts Zoe Utsinger, sophomore, Twin Valley South - I consider myself a big cross country fan, but I'll admit, until last weekend I'd never heard of Zoe Utsinger.
As a matter of fact, I searched through my photo archives and Zoe was always pictured far back in the distance. With good reason too. She was a minute runner as a freshman and ran in the 21's for most of this season.
Apparently she's figured out this running thing though, because on September 30th she finished 10th at the Buck Creek Invitational in an impressive Then last Saturday she clocked a personal record I'll be interested to see if Zoe can keep the momentum she's established these last few weeks and make a name for herself at the district meet.
Grace Adams, sophomore, West Liberty-Salem - Grace is one of those runners every coach would love to have. She's consistent and she's consistently good. Since the halfway point of her freshman year Grace almost always runs in the 19's and, outside of the state meet, she's always in the top ten finishers. She ran a There's just too much talent in my opinion for Grace to win this weekend, but I wouldn't be going out on a limb to say she'll run another something and finish with another top ten.
