She also broke the tape at the Nike Southeast Regional in North Carolina with a time of 16:02.1, eclipsing the WakeMed course record by 20 seconds and producing the second-fastest 5K clocking by a prep girls in U.S. history. She also triumphed at the Red, White and Blue Classic during her unbeaten campaign.
