Laura Turner was wicked fast

That Laura Turner...

Navy carpetbagger Laura Turner set up shop in Rhode Island and changed the Ocean State's expectations for how high school running is done. She terrorized the track in the late 90s and won seven indoor and outdoor titles, two cross country titles and had three others handed to her by runners who were intimidated by a stoic glance she shot them just to see how they'd react. After years and years of oversight, the Rhode Island Interscholastic League welcomed LTO to join the state's athletic hall of fame, to which she will be inducted in May 2013. We are already scouting New England track meets so the team can witness her receiving this honor and then loot Providence afterward.

For those who don't know, LTO qualified for Footlocker, the most coveted high school xc race in the land...

Twice!

And that was when they only took 8 harriers...not 10.

Legit.
