Big River Championship Girls Mile Preview

Taylor Werner (Ste. Genevieve, MO) - A dark horse for the race, Werner has been a force at the Festival of Miles over the last three years. As only an eighth grader in 2012 Werner placed second followed by a third place finish as a freshman and a fourth place finish a year ago as a sophomore. Werner started out the season slow by her standards but has turned on jets lately. Werner went 3 for 3 this weekend in open events, making her 12 for 12 now in open events at the State Meet in her career (800m, 1600m, 3200m, and Cross Country). She record season bests in both the 800m (2:17) and 3200m (10:34) as well as her second best time of the season in the 1600m (4:59).
