Pat Eggleston, Brentsville, Sr. -- All-Met during the cross-country season and all-state performer in the indoor 3,200 meters should be a state contender in the outdoor distance races.
Cameron Perry, Forest Park, Jr. -- Indoor track All-Met was one of the D.C. area's best in the long and triple jumps and should make an impact in the jumps as well as the longer sprints.
Brittney Hazel, Woodbridge, Jr. -- Among the D.C. area's best in the long and triple jumps is poised for a prolific spring after a winter in which she won five events at the Cardinal District indoor championships.
