Team NSAF in Iceland! LIVE stream, LIVE RESULTS and more!

by Steve Underwood

Team NSAF will be competing this morning at the Reykjavic International Games in Iceland!

Eight of the top prep sprinters and middle distance runners were chosen for this team earlier this winter and have traveled overseas for this event – following in the great tradition started by the National Scholastic Athletics Foundation many years ago and instituted as an annual event in 2006 with the first Caribbean Scholastic Invitational.

For the men, Marcellus Moore and Malcolm Johnson, Jr. will be competing in the 60m dash, while Ashton Allen and Mordecai McDaniel will contest the 400m. For the women, it will be Leah Phillips and Hannah Waller in the 60, Mary Gregory in the 400 and Nia Frederick in the 800. All eight will be competing in the men’s and women’s 4x200m relays, respectively. Scroll down below for photos and profiles of each student athlete.

The timetable for each of the NSAF athletes is below. We plan to stream the races LIVE on our Facebook page, then post them later in landscape format. Live results are HERE and we will post full results later.

Notes: With impressive early-season performances Texas A&M and Arkansas Invites, Moore is the current U.S. indoor high school leader at 60m and #3 at 200m with new PRs of 6.75 and 21.23 … he is the U18 World Leader ( in both events … he was #2 on the World U18 list last year in the 100, where he ran 10.31, part of his Illinois state meet 100/200 sweep … that 10.31 is also the top returning mark among U.S. preps … Moore was 4th in the 200 and 7th in the 60 at last winter’s NBNI, then 6th in the 100 final (10th 200 qualifying) at the USA U20 champs outdoors.


Mordecai McDaniel
St. Johns College HS, Washington DC
Junior, Class of ’20 (DOB: 8/21/2002)
PRs: 55m-6.53i, 60m-7.16i, 100m-10.86(10.81w), 200m-21.85/22.43i, 300m-34.33i, 400m-48.25/49.93i, 500m-1:07.96i
Notes: McDaniel is a rising star, including a new indoor 300m PR of 34.33 at the VA Showcase for 3rd place in an elite field … he also has new indoor PRs at 400m and 500m, while also racing as short as 55m … his best showing outdoors last spring came in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) meet where he won the 400 and was 2nd in the 200m, setting his 48.25 and 21.85 (nwi) PRs … he was 8th in the Emerging Elite 400 at NBNO last spring.


Malcolm Johnson, Jr.
St. Stephens & St. Agnes School, Alexandria, VA
Sophomore, Class of ’21 (DOB: 10/17/2001)
PRs: 55m-6.42i, 100m-10.62, 200m-21.96/22.46i, 300m-36.35i
Notes: Johnson is really making his mark as a young sprinter this winter, highlighted by a new 6.42 55m PR for 3rd at the VA Showcase … he also lowered his 200m indoor best there to 22.46 … his previous most notable effort came last spring when he set the New Balance Nationals Outdoor (NBNO) freshman 100m meet record with his 10.62 victory – also the top mark by a 9th-grader for the entire 2018 season.


Ashton Allen
Bullis School, Potomac, MD
Junior, Class of ’20 (DOB: 3/25/2002)
PRs: 55m-6.62i, 100m-10.85, 200m-21.23, 300m-35.01i, 400m-47.53/47.83i, 500m-1:04.60i
Notes: Allen’s role with his school is as much as a lethal relay anchor as an individual long sprint star – and he proved as much last weekend at the VA Showcase anchoring Bullis to staggering U.S. national prep records of 3:12.53 4x400 (auto-timed 46.57 anchor) and 1:25.60 4x200, beating a pair of 10-year-old marks … earlier this winter, he set new PRs of 47.53 and 1:04.60 in the 400m and 500m, currently #2 U.S. prep in both events … injury issues slowed his 2018 outdoor season, but he actually ran 47.53 and 21.23 PRs for 400 and 200 in 2017 as a 15-year-old freshman.


Leah Phillips
Bullis School, Potomac, MD
Junior, Class of ’20 (DOB: 8/14/2002)
PRs: 55m-7.03i, 200m-24.25i, 300m-38.67i, 400m-56.35i, 55H-7.89i, 60H-8.49i, 100H-13.68, 400H-59.50.
Notes: Like Allen, Phillips is a huge part of Bullis School’s monster relay legacy and a versatile sprinter/hurdler with 7.03 55m/59.50 400mH range … she was part of the team’s indoor national record 4x200s last winter, as well as 2019’s U.S. prep-leading 3:42.06 4x400 … her biggest improvements this winter have been in the short sprints with her new 55m (US#5) and 200m PRs … she also ranks US#2 with her near-PR 7.93 50H this winter.


Nia Frederick
Bullis School, Potomac, MD
Junior, Class of ’20 (DOB: 12/15/2001)
PRs: 200m-25.79w, 400m-57.94i, 500m-1:17.37i, 800m-2:14.19
Notes: Frederick’s sweet spot is probably the 800, where she’s been a consistent sub-2:20 performer with a best under 2:15 … she was also part of the U.S. prep-leading 3:42.06 4x400 mentioned above … but she can also rip a solid 400, as well as indoor distances like 300m, 500m and 600m.


Hannah Waller
South Lakes HS, VA
Junior, Class of ’20 (DOB: 12/19/2001)
PRs: 55m-6.87i, 60m-7.51i, 100m-11.76, 200m-24.10i/23.97, 300m-38.50i, 400m-55.46, LJ-18’8”i
Notes: Waller is a versatile all-around sprinter and jumper, with perhaps her biggest highlights coming in her state championship last winter when she swept the 55m and 300m titles with her 6.87 and 38.50 PRs … she’s been winning at both distances this winter, showing signs she can beat those PRs by March … also a big part of South Lakes’ strong relay crews.


Mary Gregory
South Lakes HS, VA
Junior, Class of ’20 (DOB: 1/18/2002)
PRs: 200m-25.46, 300m-40.52, 400m-57.55i/54.91, 500m-1:14.81i,
Notes: Gregory is a versatile long sprinter from 200m to 500m, with a major highlight coming last spring as she powered under 55 seconds for a 54.91 PR and 2nd in her state championships … she was also 3rd in her state indoor 500m last winter at 1:14.81 … she joins Waller on South Lakes’ outstanding relays.
