Lauren Gale dropped over half a second from her best in the 100.

Lauren Gale has been a dominating figure in 4A for all three years of her high school career, and there's been one common theme that explains this: she improves every year. 

In the Top 100 list between 2017 and 2018, Gale made the biggest jump in the 100 at .59 seconds. She ran 12.38 last year, and dropped that to 11.79 - that's over half a second for 100 meters, where time can be made up in the start, the finish, and everywhere in between. But .59 indications an improvement in all three. 

Only two athletes in the top 100 improved half a second. Ereana McCallister was a close, close second to Gale in improvement. McCallister went from 12.89 to 12.33 over the past year for a .56 improvement. Julyah Wilson was the only other sprinter over the half-second mark, as she went from 12.72 to 12.22. 

Additionally, Sydney Ritschard has a .49 improvement, going from 12.86 to 12.37.
