This past weekend (2/21-2/22) both the MPSSAA and VHSL held their State Championship meets and the competition was fierce. As predicted, we saw a lot of movement in the top times lists (excel download):
The NFHS Network was on site to capture video of the meets and you can watch the replay on demand (with a subscription):
