Most Improved Girls So Far This Season



Now that we're deep enough into the spring to have a solid base of data for our rankings, we thought it would be fun to start identifying the athletes who have "made the leap" already. In other words, who has improved the most from 2017 to 2018 so far?

NOTE: to be in these rankings, an athlete had to be in the top 200 in California at the end of the 2017 season, because that was the starting point for this report. As much fun as it would be to search through EVERYONE in the database, that is simply too large a data set for us to efficiently crunch it.
