*These are performances in the database and not athletes. Meaning, some athletes could be counted multiple times. 

The biggest number that jumps out here is the 4K distance. This is the distance that is the state championship distance so naturally it had the largest growth in numbers. That is also in no small part thanks to Knights Crossing and other invites being 4K's now as well. 

Another interesting number here was the Two Mile. That event was actually larger than the 4K for boys and almost as large for the girls. Showing us that the growth wasn't just in one event but across the board.
