Colorado 4A Girls Meet Of The Decade

Kaela Edwards, a blast from the past, happens to hold the top 4A 800 time from the last decade. A lot of folks will be surprised to learn that.

This one brings us to the end of the decade meets. 4A Girls are the last to take center stage.

Teams included here are those teams currently listed under CHSAA 4A track and field. Not all of those teams were 4A all decade long, but it gives us a clear boundary line even so. 

Only wind legal marks were used for the 100, 200, 100H, LJ, and TJ. Only in-state marks during the CHSAA-sanctioned seasons ranging from 2010 through 2019 were used.

If doing this sort of analysis fascinates you, you should become a MileSplit member for full access to the Colorado Track XC database of performances. This article is just a teaser of the kind of information that is at your fingertips as a MileSplit subscriber.

And, now, the 4A Girls meet of the decade...
