Madison Langley-Walker is coming off a great season int he 300-meter hurdles. She closed out her season with a state title in the event in AAA, running 42.54, which is the fastest returning time in the event. The Upper Dublin senior (above) will be a factor in the long and triple jump and the high hurdles as well this season, but she'll certainly be the one to beat in AAA this season in the intermediates.

Cheltenham's Bria Barnes didn't race the hurdles much last season, but when she did, she was one of the most impressive in the state. Barnes went 42.84 to win the SOL American Conference title last season. If she races the hurdles more this season, the junior will be worth keeping an eye on.


In AA, a good race will be brewing. Neumann Goretti's Sydni Townsend (above) is the defending state champion in AA. She went 43.03 in the state final last season for the win. She's also a very quick 400 meter runner and the intermediate hurdles/400 double is difficult to manage at states, so we'll see which one she goes for.

Swenson's Jada Smith was fourth in AA at states last season, but also ran 43.03 last season to win the District 12 title over Townsend last season. Look for Smith to be a factor this season as well. Skyla Wilson of Susquehanna Community was second to Townsend at states last season. She dropped a quick 43.33 at states and will be a senior to watch this spring.

A good batch of other talented returners are also back in AAA and AA. In AAA, Plymouth Whitemarsh's Taylor O'Brien (third), Cumberland Valley's Taylor Jede (fourth), Conestoga Valley's Jane Livingston (fifth), Mount Lebanon's Molly Mangan (sixth), and Oakland Catholic's Jayla Ellis (seventh) are among the returning medalists. In AA, United's Michaela Bracken was fifth last season and Greenwood's Paityn Wirth was seventh at states. Both are back looking for return trips to the podium.

Check out the top 500 returners in the girls' 300-meter hurdles and watch an interview with Langley-Walker after winning the state title last spring.
