She took second in the 400 meters and sixth in the 200 at the Class 3A state meet as a freshman last season. During the summer, Kidd, 15, won the 400 meters in her age group for the second year in a row at the AAU National Junior Olympic Games.

The senior finished eighth in the 100 at the 3A state meet and was part of the 4x100 relay team that finished fifth.
