(note: state rankings are taken from ny.milesplit.com when I write the article during the weekend, and the state leaderboard doesn’t tend to get updated until after the weekend, so with outdoor season marks sometimes rapidly improving with the weather, by the end of the week the state rankings are sometimes lower than reported here)
