USATF JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS The USATF Junior Championships will be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 16-17, 2001 in Richmond, VA. Our schedule of events will be modified slightly from prior years so that athletes, especially those in field events, may be able to compete in both meets (this applies to all field events except for the men’s discus and hammer throws; doubling in track events [except 200m through the mile] is possible).   Meet management will provide a charter bus for athletes (with a minimal charge for others) after the meet on Friday and on Saturday evenings, June 15 and 16, which will travel from the N.C. State track directly to the USATF Junior Championships Meet Headquarters Hotel, about 125 miles from Raleigh.
RESULTS
Complete results will be available at the NSSF web site:  www.NationalScholastic.org and on Dyestat.
