All-Time 400m Programs
We've been working to expand our vast results database this summer adding in several state championship meets dating back to 1995, and the plan is to continue throughout the summer. While we don't have every team's top athletes of all-time we wanted to take a look at the data we had to see what programs (schools) had the top performers in every track and field event outdoors.
We scored each team just like a cross-country meet, giving 1 point for the fastest time, and so on. A program's score is based on the top five performers in the event with the top 7 athletes acting as displacers.
Today we are going to take a look at the girl's 400m. Below are the top five programs based on the results we currently have in the database. For the complete list of 93 teams visit the link below.
Scarborough is the top-ranked program with all five scorers having run under sixty seconds. Emily Tolman leads the way with a personal best of 57.96. Gaby Panagakos is next with a 58.64 and then sprint star Katie Toye at 59.18. The Red Storm have had six total athletes under sixty and averaged an impressive 58.86 for their scoring five.
