17: Patricia Miessner, Eastlake, Jr.
Division I duel: One of the great duels last year came in Division I, where Eastlake’s Patricia Miessner and El Camino’s Liliana Prieto battled. Miessner scored a 20-second victory in the section championships, but Prieto proved superior at state, finishing 15th at 18:11.0 to Miessner’s 17th in 18:15.4. Prieto, a senior, and Miessner, a junior, figure to be right back at it with Canyon Crest’s Carlie Dorostkar (25th at state) pushing both.
