Ava Fitzgerald returns as one of the top hurdlers in the state as she also looks to lead Roseville in the sprints relays. The last time we saw her compete was in 2019 when she placed 6th in the 100m hurdles final and 5th in the 300m hurdles finals at the MSHSL State Championships. She got a head start on this year's season by competing indoors at the Illinois Meet of Champions Showcase where she ran in the 200m dash and 60m hurdles.
