This spring, we saw lots of girls getting really fast in the 800m who also run cross country in the fall. We also saw 7 of the top returning girls go sub-60 seconds in the 400m. This should transfer over for them into the cross country season and provide them with that little extra push needed to outkick many of their opponents on the course.
All of these performance times come straight from the MileSplit database and may not include every time run by athletes.
Check out who tops the lists and who to keep an eye on come October to pull out some great closing speed.
