1. The race of the year so far may have come in the 1,600 meters at last weekend’s Bruce Ritter Invitational hosted by Downers Grove North. York’s Emma Fisher won in 5 minutes, 2.23 seconds — three-hundredths of a second ahead of Glenbard West’s Madeline Perez.

2. Young’s Shianne Baggett is someone to keep an eye on in the middle distances. She’s 2-for-2 in invitational titles outdoors after running 2:20.76 last weekend at Schaumburg’s Mike Rebeck Invitational.

3. Edwardsville’s Emmonie Henderson could be the greatest thrower in Illinois history. She had an all-time state best of 167 feet, 8 inches in the discus last week, breaking the three-year old record of Carlinville’s Kelsey Card. Henderson is going for a four-peat in the shot put in Class 3A and a three-peat in the discus (she was third as a freshman).
