The National Scholastic Athletics Foundation (NSAF) and its medical staff, led by Dr. Robert Jones and in direct discussion with the Center for Disease Control (CDC), have made the decision Wednesday night to cancel the 2020 New Balance Nationals Indoor (NBNI), which was to take place at The Armory this weekend, March 13-15.
“Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and out of concern for the safety of all athletes, coaches and families, we’ve decided it’s in the best interest of all parties to cancel the meet,” said NSAF and NBNI Meet Director Jim Spier. “It’s the hardest decision we’ve ever had to make.”
A full press release with more detailed information will be posted tomorrow. Please stay tuned and check back here at nationalscholastic.org for that and for information on the distribution of this year’s NBNI backpacks.
