Student-athletes from a group of colleges in upstate New York may be at a disadvantage at this month’s NCAA Division III Swimming Championship in North Carolina because they'll have to stay in another state, thanks to an executive order by Governor Andrew Cuomo enacted in 2016.

The irony is that the order initially was in response to North Carolina's transgender "bathroom ban," which was repealed in 2017. However, Cuomo's order remains in place and the athletes still have to stay elsewhere

Over a dozen students from across three schools under the State University of New York (SUNY) system qualified for the competition in Greensboro, N.C. But because the current order from Albany, which bans publicly funded travel to the Tar Heel State, is still in effect,  the team will have to stay over an hour away from the competition site in neighboring Virginia.

No wonder why New York is in a sorry state right now.
