Updated 4/25 to enhance both the sophomore and freshman pages.
This week's featured rankings article focuses on year-over-year progression for 1600 meters. We examine the senior class in two charts: 1) Season bests through all four years to date, and 2) freshman-to-senior season improvement, comparing the difference between those two seasons.
For the junior class, we look a SBs through all three seasons to date. For sophomores, we chart SBs over their first two seasons. And, for the freshman class, we rank the class by 1600 best this season.
In each list, we pulled the top 250. In the case of the freshman-to-senior improvement chart for seniors, the list includes only athletes with times in both seasons.
