meet logoThe recently posted Start List for the 2018 New Balance Nationals Indoor meet includes a select group of Connecticut indoor track and field athletes who will compete against the best in the nation during the three days of competition starting on Friday at the New Balance Track and Field Center, The Armory in New York.

The MySportsResults.com Special Report lists those Connecticut athletes who had qualified from meets this past season who are slated to compete in Championship relay and individual events where they are seeking to achieve the coveted All-American status in one of the top six places during the meet held on March 9, 10 and 11, 2018.

The national meet offers Championship events and a full slate of Emerging Elite events as well as several Freshman-only events. Almost all the Elite events are contested on Friday (EE Mile on Saturday) while the almost all of the Championship events are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. The Championship races are for those who have made the qualifying standards for those events. The Emerging Elite Division is for those who have not quite made those standards. The Emerging Elite Division is open to any high school athlete who has 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. This division has been in place for several years in the outdoor version of this meet.

The official 2018 NBNI Start list and Schedule of Events are available at the National Scholastic Athletics Foundation (NSAF) host website.
