Boys 500m Depth
Once again in an attempt to make things very accurate we will only be looking at performances from 2009 and later. That includes VA #3, VA #5, VA #7, and VA #10 All-Time.
Leading the way in 2009 and amongst all these other teams is the squad from VA #3 All-Time Western Branch. This quartet included three of the same guys that led them in the 300 that year.
Also running well in 2009 was VA #10 all-time Albemarle. The big thing here was the absence of Jordan Hill who was their top 300 runner. This obviously begins to hint at why their 4x400 was so good. (See more in conclusion) They went from being rank 17th in the 300 to 4th in the 500.
Then it was the 2013 Westfield squad who made some big improvements. More specifically they went from 20th in the 300 to 6th in the 500. Just like Albemarle, one of the most important things here was not actually the 300 or 500m distance...
Finally we have T.C. Williams who didn't even have enough depth at the 500 in 2015. Josephus Lyles though did run one of the five fastest times ever in state history.
