How'd we calculate this? We took the top four athletes from each state and combined them for a relay.
Pennsylvania does it again. Josh Hoey and company lead the Pennsylvania boys to victory in the All-Star 4x800 in what would be a national record of 7:29.62.
In fact, two teams would go under the national record with a third very close behind, but it's the Keystone State out in front as Hoey gets help from Liam Conway, Tyler Shue and Kamil Jihad. All three of the supporting cast are under 1:55 to go along with Hoey's national record of 1:47.67.
In fact, the fifth, sixth, and seventh fastest boys in Pennsylvania are all under 1:55, too, and could put together a competitive B squad with their fourth runner at 1:55.03 (7:39.35).
