Redemption Sunday at NIN - STEVEU Story - It wasn't just the record-setters like Albemarle VA's boys (7:36.99 4x800) and Wayne Davis II NC (7.60 60H), but many others feeding off specific motivations that go beyond the headlines.  Milers Emily Lipari (US#1 4:47.44) and Andrew Springer (US#1 4:08.47) set the tone with dramatic mile victories and many others followed.

Doubt turns to confidence: Hasay dominates the 2M - It didn't take a US record, says Rich Gonzalez, to dissolve Jordan's post-Foot Locker concerns as she ruled the NIN deuce.

From crutch to clutch: Davis hurdles into history - Rich Gonzalez tells how Wayne Davis went from "crutch to clutch" at NIN, and became the best indoor HS hurdler in history.

Friday: McCullough, Verzbicas make it a day to remember - As great as Hasay and Co. might make the rest of the weekend action, the USRs 92-07.50 in the weight throw by Conor McCullough and the 14:18.42 5k by Lukas Verzbicas should not be soon forgotten - SteveU story

Nike Indoor Nationals - The First 10 Years

From Casey Combest's rocket 60 in the inaugural meet to Fantastic Francena's incredible 51.93, Nike Indoor has been the home of US records and other sensational performances. DyeStat has been present from the beginning.

Mike Byrnes, who was present at the creation of NSSF and high school national championship meets, called McCorory's run the greatest high school performance he had ever seen. 

This was a classic “Where were you when….” moment in high school track history as McCorory did the unthinkable and broke a sprint record on a flat track.

This year, NIN sprinters will not have the flat track disadvantage as the meet moves to Reggie Lewis Center in Boston.


FINAL time schedule will be available at registration - no significant changes are expected.
Women's events will precede Men's events unless otherwise noted. Seeded sections will be run last.
