Vestavia Hills AL soph Laurel Pritchard broke up a tight 3-way race in the last 200 meters. "The field was incredibly stiff, but I felt good on the last lap," Pritchard said. "I thought I had a little sprint in me." That "little sprint" carried Pritchard past front runner Terrica Hamilton 5:08.41 (Magnet Baton Rouge) and Aubrey Phillips 5:09.17 (Woodlawn Baton Rouge). All three runners beat the old meet record, and it was a one-second PR for Pritchard.
