Imagine: NM 1A Girls Decade Meet


Annie Stirling was unquestionably the top 1A pole vaulter of the decade.

You probably don't need a lot of help thinking of the powerhouse programs of New Mexico 1A Girls track and field over the last decade. And, in fact, the virtual meet that follows should confirm most or all of your suspicions.

But, there's still something to be gained by going through the data with a finer-tooth comb than the view from 30,000 feet allows. Hopefully, this virtual meet of the decade will do that for you--perhaps shedding some light on not only the questions of which were the best teams, but also which teams were best at each event. Perhaps even which years were pulled along by one or two exceptional athletes who drew out the best in their competition.

Probably a few more questions answer themselves as well as you pore over the data. One limitation to note here is that, being 1A, the mid season results are mostly (not entirely) missing from much of the decade. State meet results are complete, but there were undoubtedly some mid season results that would have made the cut here as well had those been accessible.

But they aren't, so we'll have to make do with what we have.

We should also note that I've designated as 1A schools those schools that are currently 1A. Those schools have not necessarily been 1A for all of the past decade, but this was--by far--the easiest way to split it out.

As an aside, I'll do as many of these articles for each of New Mexico's classifications and genders as I can glean photos for. Joe Giglia, former coach at Cimarron High School, was good enough to supply a photo for this article, enabling 1A Girls to happen. Please know you're welcome to send me images that cause other ones to be doable as well. I won't run one of these without a cover photo.

As before, I'm scoring eight deep (10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1) and ignoring wind readings. Out-of-state marks, of which there are almost none in 1A, are included.

Without further ado, here is your New Mexico 1A Girls Meet of the Decade results (there are some slight errors in the team scoring on account of ties in jumping events that didn't fully resolve on the back side):
