UW Cross Country Recruit, Katie Flood - Best Ever?

Iowa's Katie Flood, heading to Washington this fall, cemented her legacy by dominating her final state championships, winning four titles while breaking her own state record in the 3,000-meters with a U.S.-leading time of 9:27.25. That 3k time would rank in UW's top-10 both indoors and outdoors.

Here is an excerpt from the above article, in reference to her 3k time: "One thing was missing from her resume that really cements prep distance stars from the rest of the pack: a standout performance on the track, the kind that makes jaws drop around the country. That distinguishing mark has now been met, and she will undoubtedly go down in history as the greatest prep distance runner that the state of Iowa has ever produced."

Flood's 3k time was 15 seconds under her previous PR which was already the fastest in state history. Later that same day she came back to anchor a win for Dowling Catholic in the 4x800m relay. Two days after that Flood surprised with a win in the open 800 with a big PR of 2:09.76, then she finished off the quadruple with a victory in the 1,500-meters in 4:31.33.

The win in the 3,000-meters was the fourth in a row for Flood. Her lengthy list of achievements this year also includes a victory at Nike Cross Nationals in the fall and a few more individual titles at the Drake Relays earlier this season.
