Girls 300m Depth

Unlike the guys, the girls 4x400 list has a six second difference between first and tenth opposed to a 0.96 second difference on the guys' side. That should make for some very telling differences. For our analysis here: below are all of the averages that we have for the top 11 in order. 

The two big take-aways are that the state record directly correlates with the fastest 300 1-4 split and that there is only one instance of a jump in order. That jump took place in 2015 when Western Branch ran a faster 4x4 but had a slower 300m average than Nansemond River. The order switched outdoors though with Nansemond River going on to beat them head-to-head and break the state record at New Balance Nationals.
