BSAL best?

I was just looking over the Bay Shore Athletic League Championship Track and Field Meet Records, and it’s possible that the league can justifiably compare itself with any other league in the state, if not the nation, from 2001 to the present based on the total quality of the marks below. Do you agree? Remember that these marks were run only in the league championship meet, which takes place three weeks before the state championships:
