LA City Section Prelims

D1 Girls

There may not have been a younger division in the state last season, with only one senior among the top 20 finishers at the section final last year.

Lila Copeland, last year's division champion as a freshman, is now at Redondo.

Jicel Fernandez-Ramirez, a junior from El Camino Real, is the projected favorite this year with a chance to establish that on the course at Wednesday's prelims at Pierce College in Woodland Hills.

Fernandez-Ramirez was fourth last year but has the fastest three-mile time coming in, 10-plus seconds faster than sophomore Sarah Bentley of Palisades Charter.  Bentley was eighth in the final last year. 

Kimia Samandi, a senior at Palisades Charter, was second last year as a junior nearly 18 seconds behind Copeland. She ranks ninth coming into championship season.

Team Competition
