We haven't seen the best in the girls 400 just yet.
Teri Bernhardt-Rodriguez was on-site at the 2015 GMAC Championship and captured just shy of 900 images including this candid of the Miami Jackson girls. Check out all the photos and make sure to tag yourself.
The Bolles girls edged out Hallandale by ONE point in 2014 to win the 2A state championship. This year the Lady Bulldogs should have an easier task as they return a majority of that squad. The cross country state champions will use their distance prowess to their advantage in the 4x800m relay, 800, 1,600 and 3,200m events. Miami Jackson, Ransom Everglades, Pine Crest, and Hallandale should all compete for the runner-up spot. See our top 2A girls teams heading into the 2015 season.
In our final installment of Head Of The Class we take a look at the top freshman. Miami Jackson's Daesha Rogers and Holy Trinity's Trevor Kattenberg top our lists. Where do you rank in the class of 2017?

Dade Christian senior Aklesso Agama and Miami Jackson senior Robin Reynolds are this week's Warrior of the Week winners. Agama took two golds at the 1A State Finals winning the long jump (22-11.75) and triple jump (47-04.50). He was also a member of the fourth third place 4x1 relay team and runner-up 4x4 team. Reynolds became the winningest female track and field athlete picking up her 14th gold medal of her career. She won the long jump with a nation leading mark of 20-06.25, 100 (11.79), 400 (52.59), and lost in the 200 by a thousand of a second.
Robin Reynolds knows where she’s going to college: the University of Florida. She knows where she wants to be this summer: London. And in three months, she hopes to make her way to the top of the podium four more times. (via The Miami Herald)
Two of the top quarter-milers in the country have committed to the University of Florida. St. Thomas Aquinas star Arman Hall, the reigning IAAF World Youth Champion, and Miami Jackson standout Robin Reynolds, who has won double digit state titles, will both call Gainesville home next year.
Leading up to track season, Reynolds was almost certainly the most hyped and anticipated incoming freshman sprinter ever in Florida. Her exploits in youth track & field meets and at last year's middle school state championship are legendary. She is expected to be the next in a long line of great Florida sprinters from Miami including Ericka Whipple and Sanya Richards earlier in the decade. Many already seem certain that she is a future Olympian. With thousands of eyes and many tons of weight all upon her, no one would have faulted a mere freshman from faltering, flinching, or even folding under the pressure. No way. Not Reynolds.
The Louie Bing Classic is always a star studded affair for the short stuff and the jumps and that's basically because Miami teams typically dominate these events and all the big guns come out for it. This year was no exception and our leaderboard of a week's worth of state rankings was completely rewritten by this meet for just about every event 800 meters and shorter, boys and girls. Last year's much lauded middle school sensation Robin Reynolds officially became a freshman phenom, opening her high school career with Miami Jackson. She earned three golds and a bronze in the two-day meet.
