What Is This?
Over the next few weeks Milesplit Kansas will be rolling out brackets broken down by discipline. Fans can vote for who they think is the top athlete in each discipline. In the end, we will be crowning the top track and field athlete in the state of Kansas as selected by the fans. This poll is for the best boys field events of the past decade.
We've selected 8 boys, the two top ranked, over the last decade, in each event and two more random. We ranked them 1-8, giving each field discipline a top 7 seed then randomly placed the remaining 5. We then placed them in a bracket of head-to-head matchups where your poll votes on the next page will determine who advances.
Athletes included are from the period between 2011 and 2020. This is based solely on their top tier ranking for the decade. Many top athletes in each discipline were left off which saddened us but time constraints and bracketing size had to play into consideration.
How This Works
Athletes are seeded 1 through 8 based on marks and ranking. After each round, the person with the most votes in their matchup will advance to the next round. Voting will end at 1 p.m. CT for each round. You may vote on Ks.MileSplit.com. Be sure to spread the word to advance your favorites into the next round!
Round 2: May 29 - June 2
Final Round: June 3-6
