The most decorated female track athlete in Florida high school history as the winner of 18 gold medals, the 5-foot-11 senior middle distance and distance talent captured two silvers at this month’s USATF Junior National Championships (finishing second to collegians in both races) and clocked the No. 10 time in girls’ prep history in setting a meet record in the mile at the adidas Boost Boston Games in May. Collier also swept the 800- and the 1600-meter run at the Class 2A state championships this past season, posting all-class best times, in addition to anchoring the first-place 4x800 relay quartet that broke the tape in a state-record 9:06.55. Her personal-best 2:00.85 in the 800 earlier this month is a state record, the nation’s fastest girls high school time in 2018 and the No. 5 time in American girls’ prep history. Her personal-best 4:44.51 in the 1600 ranks among the top 15 times in history among U.S. high school girls.
Collier has maintained a 4.67 GPA in the classroom and has signed a national letter of intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at Stanford University beginning this fall.
Collier has donated her time extensively as a youth camp counselor.
