meet logo The 2016 New Balance Nationals Outdoor Championship Meet starts today for three days of competition at the NC A&T Irwin Belk Track at North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro, NC. The national meet host by the National Scholastic Athletics Foundation offers both Championship events and a full slate of Emerging Elite and Freshman events. The Championship races are for those who have made the qualifying standards for those events. The first six places were named NSAF All Americans in the Championship events. The Emerging Elite are for those who had not quite made those standards. The Emerging Elite Division is open to any high school athlete who had made the Emerging Elite standards, whether they are Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors or Seniors. The idea is that, eventually, an Emerging Elite athlete will join the elite ranks, but has not yet attained that status.
