  • First place finish at the Draper Invitational on Saturday, May 4, which is the first time Oakcrest has ever had a champion in that meet;

  • Six school records: 400m, 800m, 1600m, 4X800m relay, 4X400m relay, and the Distance Medley Relay

  • Led Oakcrest to its first ever PVAC conference Track and Field championship in 2017.

  • Four-time Virginia state champion in multiple events

  • Accepted to UCLA and plans to run track there.

Lily comes from a long line of track athletes: Great grandfather ran at the 1908 Penn Relays, grandfather ran track at the University of North Carolina, dad ran track at Navy. Her coach is Jen Pruskowski and she’s been a great influence for Lily both on and off the track for 7 years.

She is also a straight "A" student and involved in a huge number of activities.
