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 girls sprinter of the past decade.
We've selected 16 girls based on times, state records, state medals and state titles in the 100m, 200m, 400m. We ranked them 1-16, placed them in a bracket of head-to-head matchups where your poll votes will determine who advances.
Athletes included are from the period between 2010 and 2019. This is based solely on times. Sprinters were selected (Which was extremely tough) based on top times in the sprinting events. Their times had to have ranked them in the top 100 for each event. The final cut to 16 was based solely on their combined times, state records and state titles, along with rankings. Pr's listed are taken from our database.
How This Works
