After running 56 seconds for 400 meters and 2:13 for 800 meters this spring, Jessica Edwards of the Cantebury School in Fort Myers is someone that you don't want running off your shoulder on the final straightaway of a cross country race. Edwards has a 5K personal best of 19:21 as well.
When it comes down to making one final move this fall on grass, who's going to have the kick to surge ahead?
We've looked at the best open 400m and 800m splits of the Florida's top 500 returners in the 5K heading into the 2018 cross country season to determine what we may see out there on grass, dirt, trails and everything else. Keep in mind, our statistics are based on times we have in our system and the lists are calculated based on current times from the past season.
