Marlee Starliper and Taryn Parks are focused on cross country for the time being. Both booked trips to San Diego, qualifying for Foot Locker Nationals this past Saturday. But as we continue our look ahead to the upcoming indoor track season, the pair lead the group of returners in the girls' mile this winter.

Parks (Greencastle-Antrim) took fourth and Starliper (Northern) was fifth in the event at the indoor state meet last year. Parks ran 4:56.66, while Starliper was just .01 behind her Central PA foe. As we moved into outdoors (1,600 meters), both of those girls (who were just freshman last year), really turned on the jets. Parks ran an incredible 4:45.81 for the win, while Starliper posted a best of 4:49.68. Let's see what kind of noise that pair can make this indoor campaign, but first it's Foot Locker for them.

Other returning medalist from indoor states is Carlisle's Meg Lebo (below). She's a junior that continues to show good improvement. Look for her to be a factor as well. Abington Heights' Katie Dammer raced some last indoor season, but didn't compete at states. The XC national qualifier (NXN) ran 4:48 for 1,600 meters at outdoor states last year for second and should be in the mix for the win in the mile at states if she opts to run.

Upper Saint Clair's Savannah Shaw, like Parks and Starliper, will be busy with XC through December 9. She's also a Foot Locker Nationals qualifier. She took ninth at indoor states, just missing a medal last year and running a PR of 5:04. But outdoors, she got stronger, eventually running 4:53 for 1,600 meters.

Elizabethtown's Katie Locker, Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic's Rylee Kopchak, Academy of Notre Dame's Jessica Schneider, and Chambersburg's Kaylee Mowery are among the returners from the indoor state meet last winter. Locker took eighth in the 1,600 meters at outdoor states in AAA, running 4:56.

Other quick times that were posted by returners come from Cheltenham's MaryGrace Rittler, Souderton Area's Emily Bonaventure, and North Penn's Ariana Gardizy.
