U.S. High School National Track and Field Records 
Amanda Moll and Roisin Willis Rise to the Top of the Charts in 2022
The older I get, the more I appreciate the best of the best athletes: The ones who have done something no one else has ever done before them. Seriously, let that thought sink into your brain a little. Think about everything that must come together at the right time and place to produce a result never before achieved. Well, that’s what Amanda Moll and Roisin Willis realized in 2022–a one in-a-million. Congratulations to them!
Yet Moll nor Willis was satisfied; they continued to amaze in 2022. Roisin won the World Under-20 800-meter championship in an event record time of 1:59.13 in Cali, Columbia. Amanda became the first American high school girl to clear 15 feet at a non-National Federation of State High School Associations (NFSH) sanctioned competition in Reno, Nevada. She posted an America Under-20 record of 15 feet 1.5 inches. Moll broke her personal best this past January to set a new world Under-20 indoor record, soaring 15 feet 2 inches.
These girls are special-plus. How special? Well, no one can predict the future with certainty. Besides, as I mentioned at the beginning of this article, it takes many things to come together at the right time and place to produce greatness. However, my senses tell me to look for both girls to provide us sports fans with some extraordinary moments for years to come.
Keep tabs on these two
As of this writing (March 7, 2023), Amanda Moll is in her senior year at Capital High School in Olympia, WA. Roisin Willis is now a freshman at Stanford University. Oh, and did I mention that Amanda has a twin sister, Hana Moll, who is just as good? Okay, I just did. Yikes! And they’re both committed to the University of Washington. Talk about one in a million; what are the odds of that?
