Wow over half the 200 boys on this list did not have times that made the top 200 as of 09/13/2017. A lot of young runners are showing up so far this year. Another big statistic that shows up is the number of improved times this year (times in parentheses). The biggest improved time is Charles Hight, Jackson Preparatory who dropped his time from 24:31.1 to 18:37.04. That is a 5:54.06 improvement and is almost a 3 minute improvement in his personal record. Our early season leader Brock Kelly, Tupelo Christian has dropped his personal record also this season.
I am encouraged to see the large number of boys here in Mississippi that are dropping their times. I hope times continue to improve and those that are behind from last year can start dropping their times.
