Julia Howe added 15 feet to her personal best.
The list isn't exactly in order, but if you scroll down enough, it's sort of in order...
And speaking of the list, eight throwers had improvements of 20-or-more-feet, and only two had improvements of over 30 feet, and it was nearly three.
Let that sink in - to gain the title of "Leap of the Year" in the girl's discus, you needed a 30+ foot improvement - that's huge.
And taking the honors is Abigail Dall.
The Palmer Ridge sophomore added a jaw-dropping 39-feet, eight-and-a-quarter inches. A year ago she competed in mostly freshmen/sophomore meets and did not merit an invite to the State Championships, as her personal best was 70-10.5, but this year she turned that story around.
Dall opened her 2019 season with an 82-3, and cracked 100 feet for the first time three weeks into April. She set her PR a week before State at St. Vrain, topping out at 110-7, before going on to finish 12th at State.
That's quite the leap!
Coming in second here is Taylor Roberts, who was the only other discus thrower to improve by over 30 feet. Like, Dall, Roberts held a PR in the 70-foot range a year ago before launching into new distances this year. She cracked 100 feet this season, capping with a 105-8 PR for a leap of 33-feet, one-inch.
Taking the third spot on this list is Jordan Dack-Howell, who in sticking with the trend, went from a 78-6 PR to 107-8 this year for an improvement of 29-feet, two-inches.
