All-Time Long Jump Programs
We've been working to expand our vast results database this summer adding in several state championship meets dating back to 1994, 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 long jump. Below are the top five programs based on the results we currently have in the database. For the complete list of 92 teams visit the link below
