As we make our way through the State Records of those events found at the State Meet, our mind also wanders to what about those events not currently contested? Over the past five years, we've seen a literal rewriting of the Record Books in the Weight Throw events, as nearly 50% of all All-Time marks come since the event was added to the Indoor State Meet lineup. Could that inclusion of a Spring Event have the same effect?
We looked across the country to see which events were currently not in our State Meet lineup, while currently in others. Granted, New York is one of the most progressive State's in the country, one of the few that run the full 400H, and the only that runs the Steeple. Other States cut out events like the Triple Jump (NJ) and the 4x800m (CA) to better balance their team-scoring meets.
Just for fun, we wanted to see which event showed the most interest. We'll announce the results next Monday. Vote below.
