Only a freshman, Allie Schadler won the Division III state championship by 20 seconds and helped Rio Rico capture the team title.

It’s no surprise she did so well, seeing her father, Stephen Schadler is the team’s coach, but the fact that she’s so young and posting such strong times is what makes it so impressive.

Choosing Schadler as our girls runner of the year was one of the easier picks. Chances are, this won’t be the last time you hear her name.
