I will add her. What event do you think she will be competing in at the SJS Masters meet?

She will probably try for both again this year, but I think she advance in the 3200 despite her love of the 800.

O'Keeffe the Younger from Davis didn't race any 3200s last year, and has an 800 PR of 2:12. Seem more likely to compete in the 800 than the 3200. Although she did win D1 XC at the CA State meet, so who knows, maybe she'll move to the longer distance in track.
