For the 7th straight year we close the high school indoor season with two national meets on the same weekend -- NIN at PG Sportsplex at Landover MD next to the Washington Redskins stadium and NSIC at the New York Armory off Broadway at 168th street in Manhattan.

With two national stages there are twice as many opportunities for athletes to bask in the limelight. But some events inevitably are deprived of the face to face showdown you expect in a national championship. The girls 800 suffers the most this time -- talent in the deepest HS event of the season is split between the two meets.

On the eve of the NCAA championships, East Carolina University freshman Lashawn Merritt has signed a professional contract with Nike.

Sanctioning Crisis
Problems end for non-member PA schools competing against NY teams in state -
and there's progress on other fronts, too.
According to PIAA Assistant Executive Director Jodi Good, the state associations of Pennsylvania and New York have reached an agreement to enable non-member schools from any state to compete against NY athletes in any event in any sport in PA. The breakthrough agreement, worked out in a telephone conference Tuesday, involved PIAA Executive Director Bradley Cashman and NYSPHSAA Executive Director Nina Van Erk, along with NY Assistant Executive Director Lloyd Mott. The agreement does not include out-of-state meets, such as those at the New York Armory in New York. But it is major progress. 7th in a series on the Sanctioning crisis by Don Rich
In high school track, not all rules are created equally. Why the rules of competition and the rules of eligibility are managed differently.
At the heart of the current sanctioning discussions - and sometimes arguments that threaten to disrupt major meets for many seasons to come - are the rules of eligibility. 8th in the series on the Sanctioning crisis by Don Rich | Sanctioning Crisis series index
