In past years, Ryann Krais and Leah Nugent made names for themselves in the high school girls competitions at the Penn Relays. This year, both runners are back to compete at the college level.

Krais won the 400-meter hurdles Championship of America four years ago when at Methacton High School. She originally went to UCLA for college, then transferred to Kansas State after her sophomore year. That move proved a success, as Krais won the 2011 NCAA heptathlon championship.

Nugent followed in Krais' footsteps as a high schooler, winning the 400m hurdles Championship of America in 2010 as a senior at Abington. Now she's at Virginia Tech.

I caught up with both runners this morning after they competed in the college women's 400m hurdles event. Joe Juliano was also on hand to talk to Krais, and you'll be able to read his story on her in Friday's Inquirer.
