* Blanche Ely's Jevon Williams has the seventh fastest 110mH time in the country in 2019 thus far
- - -
Improvement in track and field can be traced in a very simple way: Time.
And when we take a look at the development of boys in the 110mH year-over-year, we find some killer improvement across the country.
At the very highest level, Blanche Ely (FL) junior Jevon Williams has chopped off 0.41 seconds from his best of 14.35 in 2018 to 13.94 in 2019. That mark gave him his first effort under the elusive 14-second barrier and it's the second fastest wind-legal time in the country.
A total of three boys in the country have gone under 14 seconds thus far. Reaching farther, 22 athletes have gone faster than 14.4 seconds.
And within that context, we land on Loganville Grayson (GA) junior Zach Hawkins, who is the only boy within that 22 athletes who has improved by over a second year-over-year. He's cut down a best of 15.94 seconds down to 14.12 -- which is good for the 10th best wind-legal time in the country right now.
