How come CLO always mentions the states, unless the players are from NY?

In reply to by Karl Heck (not verified)

The states of the K-8 sole champion is mentioned. The states of the four co-champions in K-9 (CT, IN, TX and TX) are not mentioned. Looking at the K-12 last month, the states of the three co-champions (IL, IL and NY) are not mentioned. You probably notice it when NY is not mentioned and don't notice it when other states are not mentioned, making it seem to you that NY is the only state snubbed.
