It helps to have great teammates.
They're the ones pushing you in practice, holding you accountable and ultimately testing and challenging you to become better than you ever were before.
While relays require the top four athletes among teams, we wanted to look at the best duos in the 400m returning from last year's times, in both the boys and girls fields.

Click on the slideshow to see what we found. Our duo rankings were determined based on the time disparity between each member's top 500 rankings.
Obviously, this ranking is all about depth for team's 1-2 in the 400m. But we found that some teams even went deeper, with more than two athletes ranked high in the top 500 returners from the previous season. Those teams are below:
|No. 3 aths||name||team||time||event|
|East St. Louis (IL)||49.33||Southwestern Conference Boys Champs|
|Alief Taylor (TX)||49.63||Prairie View Relays|
