Lashawn Merritt
signs with Nike

On the eve of the NCAA championships, East Carolina University freshman Lashawn Merritt has signed a professional contract with Nike. In his short college career, Merritt had already run a 44.93 400 meters, third fastest ever indoors, and coach Bill Carson was predicting Merritt would run under 44 seconds this year. At Wilson Portsmouth VA high school last year, Merritt was World Junior champion and was also undefeated at Nike Indoor, USA Junior Nationals, Loucks Games, Virginia state meet, and AOC Raleigh.

Weekend: NY and VA meets close regular season
The last regular season weekend of the indoor season features two of the best state meets -- the Virginia AAA meet at George Mason University on Saturday and the New York state meet at Syracuse University on Sunday. Virginia features speed, led by the Bethel girls, who are #2 in the country in the 4x200 with Fracena McCorory, US#1 in the 300m. New York features distance stars, with the girls 3000 meters featuring another showdown between Foot Locker and Millrose Games champion Aislinn Ryan and defending state champion Nicole Blood of Saratoga.. Also this weekend are the New England Championships in Boston and the Mason Dixon Games in Louisville. And then come the nationals the following weekend -- the Nike Indoor Nationals in Maryland and the National Scholastic Indoor Championships in New York, with DyeStat on-site coverage of both meets.

Nike Indoor will be televised
The 7th Nike Indoor Nationals at Landover MD March 12-13 will be televised on Comcast CN8 Sports in a 2-hour show March 20 at 9 pm and repeated March 26 at 3 pm. People outside the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions can see the show on the Internet at www.cn8.tv.

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
