Each year when the calendar hits April it is time to check the Milesplit rankings nearly everyday and see who is the comeptiton this year, who will win which races, and sometimes the most prudent question who will fight with the Jamaicans the longest.
Harrisburg junior Sierra Brabham-Lawrence is a hurdles. Everything from 55 and 60 indoor, to 100, 300 (and hopefully next year, 400) outdoor. She made the semi's in AAA as a sophomore... and as a junior, medaled with a 7th place finish in the 100. Because of budget cuts, she did not run indoor until this past season, and in her first crack at the shorter race, she won a state title and tied the state meet record. At NBNI - fighting an illness - she made the semis. This spring she immediately went in the top of the 100 hurdles rankings, and is currently PA#2. And her 300m Hurdles from Pan-Ram remains PA#1. This season she added the triple jump, and in her first competition went to PA#1. She is currently PA#2.

Elk County Catholic senior Kennedy Weisner enters her final year of XC with a champion's resume. Her best year to date was last year as a junior when she won her first state cross country title - this one in the inaugural Class A Championship. Weisner also qualified for her first Foot Locker Nationals. During indoor, she was invited to her first Millrose Mile, and also to the Brooks PR meet, an elite gathering in the Northwest. She came back in outdoor to capture two state AA titles, winning the 800 and the 1600 - a very tough double. She began her final XC season at PTXC-5, setting a course record of 17:49. An injury hurt her chance to repeat in Class A in XC, and sidelined her until December. She won the Millrose Trials Mile and finished 2nd in the Millrose Games. This is her third year qualifying for the Penn Relaya Carnival Mile - taking 5th as a sophomore and 3rd as a junior.
