Winning Girls Team Score 83.4

Taylor Wright needs three individual county titles to surpass Olivia Ekpone for the most career outdoor county titles (12) and most combined indoor and outdoor county titles (20) in meet history. Wright could potentially become the first four-time James DeMoss Award Winner (Meet MVP). On a good day, she should threaten meet records in the high jump and triple jump.

The Northwest girls are heavily favored by fans to win their third consecutive team county title, but performances to date indicate that it may be closer than fans think. Gaithersburg, Paint Branch, and Walter Johnson are good dark horse candidates to win, as the fans picked. Blake would be another good dark horse pick, but over the last five years, Blake has typically not put an emphasis on team scoring at the county meet. Fans picked Blake to win the sprint relays and you would expect that all three sprint relay meet records are in jeopardy if Blake chooses to stack them.
