The chart below ranks California's top girls combo 1600-meter/3200-meter runners.
Note: This chart has been updated (as of 5/16 at 8:20 pm) to expand the list and fill in some gaps that were unintentionally created by a limited search. That search of 125 was based off 1600 times and did not take into consideration superior 3200 times that would have slotted certain runners much higher in the list. The updated data still pulls based off of 1600 rankings but the request for 500 combo runners produced this much more complete list of 403.
While the data search is based on 1600 times, the rankings below are in order of best combined times of both the 1600 and 3200 distance events. These times are solely based off of 2018 bests reported on ca.milesplit.com through meets of May 12.
The top-two ranked girls, Mariah Castillo and Maddy Denner, are the CA leaders in the 1600 and 3200, respectively. Castillo's time in the 1600 is the US leader. In the 3200, they rank Nos. 5 and 6, respectively on the national list.
Those are the only two with a combined time under 15 minutes. There are 44 under 16 minutes.
McKenna Brown, who ranks third in combined time at 15:01.43, is US No. 3 in the 1600.
There are seven within at least 20 seconds of Castillo's leading combined time but just 29 within a minute. Numbers 3-18 are within 30 seconds and Numbers 3-46 are within a minute.
Of the 34 who have run the 1600 in sub-5, 13 also have run the 3200 in sub-10:30, seven in sub-10:20, Denner, Castillo and Gillian Wagner in sub-10:15 and just Denner and Castillo in sub-10:10.
