Heading into consecutive weeks of major distance invitationals, this Saturday's Dublin Distance Fiesta and the New Balance Azusa Meet of Champions Distance Classic on March 24, we cranked up the database for a section-by-section distance breakdown.
Using only the distance events (800, 1600 and 3200) we ran a virtual meet for each of the 10 CIF sections, one for boys and one for girls, to break down the best individuals as well as top teams.
Note that the filter was used to pull the athlete's PR, regardless of which year it was recorded. That way it allows us to see the best runners from each section, some who may not yet have a mark in 2018. A transfer whose PR was at the previous school, will impact the 1st-through-8th team scoring.
Sections are listed alphabetically with boys first and then girls.
