Someone explain why my 100 time(11.31) is so trash compared to my 200(22.20) and 400(48.11) I sometimes have decent starts in the 100 but I feel like I should be running a lot faster, I am a sophomore, or was.

First, I am certainly not an expert, but usually these questions don't get many answers. So, as a general thought and based on what you even said...you have "decent starts". I am thinking in general it revolves around your start and reaction time. The 200 and 400 both allow you to make up for a slower start, it's harder to do that in a 100 race. Check out this article, you might find useful information and even some answers to your question.

There are plenty of YouTube videos that would be helpful. Best of luck to you.
