How'd we calculate this? We took the top four athletes from each state and combined them for a relay.
That Texas speed takes the Lone Star state to victory in the all-star 4x200. But it's in a time that, unlike the boys races, would not be a US No. 1 time.
That distinction belongs to the squad from Bullis School (MD).
Their national record of 1:35.39 from the VA Showcase would take down the entire field, but we did not include that time in the relay meet -- pretty crazy, right?
Texas's all-star squad would be led by Jayla Hollis's 24.08 (US No. 7) and complimented well by club teammates Kennedy Blackmon and Bailey Lear (24.15 and 24.30, respectively). Alexis Brown gives Texas four girls in the top 16 in the country and a 1:36.90 time.
Ohio gets a big boost from Abby Steiner. Her US No. 3 23.60 would help the Buckeye State slip ahead of a close field, as second and eighth place are separated by a mere 1.03 seconds.
