The 5-foot-10 junior swept the 200-meter dash, the 100 hurdles and the long jump at the AAA state meet, leading the Spartans to the team title. She also ran the lead leg for the winning 4x400-meter relay quartet and the third leg for a 4x100 foursome that broke the tape as well. At the time of her selection, her personal-best 100 hurdles clocking of 13.33 seconds to capture gold at the Great Southwest Classic ranked No. 1 nationally among prep competitors in the event in 2019, and ranked No. 29 in U.S. girls prep history. Her winning leap in the long jump at states (20-feet, 2.25 inches) ranked No. 6 in the country, and her PR in the 200 (24.05) was No. 60. The high-point trophy-winner at the state meet, she now holds a trio of Georgia AAA state records (long jump, 100 and 300 hurdles) and has won 11 state titles.
