In every race, there is always a race within the race.

That means there is more in depth analysis of a race that goes far beyond the start and finish of a race and just the athlete's times.

Coach Burke Binning of San Antonio Warren shared with MileSplit the inner workings of his mind and how he analyzed the 6A boys race.

The data shows the splits and place of each runner for each mile marker. It's intent is to shed light on how the athletes moved throughout the race.

You can see which athletes started too fast, too slow, and who stayed consistent. For example, you can see that the team winners, The Woodlands started pretty conservative, but gradually moved up and made up ground and places each mile heading to the finish.

Also starting conservative was Wylie. They moved well and perhaps made the biggest moves throughout the race, but the start was too much to make up to enable them to make the award stand.

Let the analyzing begin!
