Here is a complete list of all pieces ranked this season for 13 yo LW women. There are only 10 on the list, but you can see that 2:00 to 2:10 (8:00 to 8:40 for the 2k) would put you in the first 5. It is no doubt far more competitive by age 14.

Edit: I went ahead and got the one for age 14 as well:

You would be between 4th and 10th out of 22.

A 10 second range in the pace is awfully broad. 2:00 is tops for 13 and pretty good for 14, but 2:10 is mediocre for either age. 1:45, of course, is far beyond the top. The top one at 7:16.6 for the 2k would be a pace of about 1:49.2.
