2009 Girls Season Summary

A look at the race for number one
  
Any other year these two would have been co-runners of the year.
But with the PD's new policy of only one runner of the year some hair splitting was needed. 
With two girls of national caliber in 2009 and those two splitting their head-to-head races 
4-4 it finally came down to picking a single moment to pick one. This year that moment was
the State Meet with Taylor earning the crown by less than a second.
