T&FN Girls 400 All-Americas

5 quartermilers—the most of any event —have earned 4 rankings. However, only 2 of those ever made it to No. 1, led by Monique Henderson, whose 3 from 1999–2001 made her the only athlete here to top the rankings more than twice. The other 4-timers are Jerrika Chapple (’00, ’01, ’02, ’03), Brandi Cross (’02, ’04, ’05, ’06), Robin Reynolds (’09, ’10, ’11, ’12) and Kendall Baisden (’10, ’11, ’12, ’13)…

Baisden is the only other one of that group to rank No. 1 (’10 & ’13)… Another 8 athletes have ranked 3 times – 13 triplers is also the most of any event… Baisden and Kayla Davis (’19) are the only two frosh ever to be No. 1… A pair of sisters, Sherri and Denean Howard, accounted for 4 straight No. 1s (1979–82).
