The 5-foot-9 freshman won the 1600-meter run at the state championships this past season with a time of 4:36.67, also taking second in the 800. Engelhardt broke the state record in the 1500 by clocking a 4:11.79 at the Portland Track Festival, which ranked as the nation’s No. 1 performance among girls prep competitors in 2022. She won the mile at the Arcadia Invitational in 4:35.16, which set a U16 World Record and ranked as the No. 4 clocking in U.S. girls prep history. Engelhardt’s en-route 1600-meter time of 4:33.29 in that mile race would constitute the fastest time in California history. She capped her freshman campaign with a national title in the mile at June’s Nike Outdoor Nationals crossing the line in 4:38.40.
Engelhardt has maintained an A average in the classroom. She will begin her sophomore year of high school this fall.
Engelhardt has volunteered locally on behalf of Runners for Public Lands as well as her school’s Greener World Action Team.
