The Decade of Dominance rankings looks at the best 100 teams in each of the events below over the past 10 years.
To do this, we took the time of the top runner from every school over the past 10 years. We then took the average time of those top 10 runners to give us the top average. So on average, the No. 1 100m runner at Long Beach Poly (CA) over the last 10 years is 11.57.
In the 3200m, Great Oak High School (CA) has a 10:28.79 from their top 10 runners over the past 10 years. Looking at these rankings you can tell which teams have developed strong distance or sprint programs. Many have become powerhouses in not only their state but nationally as well.
