Today is National Girls and Women in Sports Day and SI.com is marking the occasion with our list of the best women athletes by birth state, from Alabama (Mia Hamm) to Wyoming (Karen Budge).

Some of the other notable selections include Arizona's Kerri Strug, California's Billie Jean King, Florida's Chris Evert, Idaho's Picabo Street (pictured), South Carolina's Althea Gibson, Tennessee's Wilma Rudolph and West Virginia's Mary Lou Retton.

There's also a series of galleries showcasing the most memorable Sports Illustrated covers featuring women athletes from the 1950s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and 2000s.

Which athlete represents the state where you live? Do you agree or disagree with SI.com's selection?
