Boys Leap Of The Year: Ethan Bartlett


Mountain Vista's Davis Helmerich dropped 1:36 from 2017 to 2018.

There were two other runners among the Top 100 who made leaps of over 90 seconds this season. 

Mountain Vista's Davis Helmerich had the second best improvement among the Top 100, dropping 1:36 from 2017. Helmerich's journey is similar to Bartlett's...

As a freshmen he opened his MileSplit account with a 20:14. By the end of the season he had dropped that to 18:23. Last year he inched forward ever so slightly, running 17:38.

This year he broke 17 all five times he raced, capping it with a 16:01 PR.

Yasin Sado had the third best improvement within the Top 100, dropping 1:33 from 2017. 

Last year he broke 18 just twice, running a 17:25 personal best. He broke 18:20 all eight times he raced. 

What makes Sado's improvement impressive is his efficiency. He raced a staggering 11 times this season. This year Sado broke 17 seven times, and 16 once - running a 15:52 personal best. Additionally, the KIPP Denver junior went from missing State last year by one place, to finishing eighth this year.
