This will be the 21st indoor nationals since the NSAF started its own meet in 1999 and the 9th with our partners from New Balance. We typically host more than 3,500 of the country's best track and field student-athletes from 40+ states and Canadian provinces, all of them looking to run, hurdle, jump, throw and walk their way to titles and All-American honors in 48 boys' and girls' Championship events -- plus 40 more Emerging Elite and Freshman events. We added the Mixed 4x400m Relay last year and are offering it again in 2019.

We couldn't do it without New Balance, or all of our other partners and sponsors ... plus all of the great staff, officials and volunteers who work tirelessly with the NSAF here at NBNI every year. Thanks to all of them for again working with us to make these three days the best in prep indoor T&F. 

 

2018: Another sizzling NBNI weekend!

4 National Records! 16 Meet Records! 11 Class Records! 7 Armory Records!

Stellar competition all weekend long. Nearly 40 records and many more near-records. Three thrilling days of watching the nation’s best runners, jumpers, vaulters, throwers and walkers. Yes, we had it all during our 2018 New Balance Nationals Indoor, March 9-11 – the 35th indoor championships we have hosted since 1983. More than 3,500 athletes from 44 states (+DC), 5 Canadian provinces and Germany owned the New Balance Track and Field Center at The Armory during March 9-11 – and four National Records, 16 Meet Records, 11 national Class Records and seven Armory Records were established in the Championship, Emerging Elite, Freshman and (new in 2018) Junior High and Mixed categories!

Just as impressive, in some cases, were those who just missed records – such as Anthony Schwartz and Tia Jones coming within a few hundredths (see below) of sprint and hurdle marks; a boys’ pole vault with two 18-footers for the first time; and a DMR with a best-ever three teams at 10-flat or better.

We are most grateful for our outstanding partners at New Balance –celebrating our 8th indoor nationals with them – for working with us all year to fashion another breathtaking NBNI. Thanks also to our great Presenting Sponsors at Eastbay. We hope you enjoyed what New Balance and Eastbay had to offer in their respective stores and booths and checked out their apparel, footwear and much more.

                     

We’re also filled with gratitude for our staff, officials and volunteers who serve with us during this wonderful event with us all weekend long. And a huge thanks to our partners at Runnerspace.com, who produced another super webcast, web site and library of videos and photos.

Headliners and Highlights

  • Athletes of the Meet: Schwartz and Jones each blazed to nation-leading and #2 all-time performances and earned NBNI Athlete of the Meet honors. Schwartz (American Plantation, FL sr) clocked a sizzling 6.59 in the 60m final in his 1st-ever indoor meet, trailing only Casey Combest (6.57 in 1999) on the all-time list. Meanwhile, Jones nipped Grace Stark in the 60m hurdles – both at 8.05 (8.044 to 8.047) and barely shy of Tonea Marshall’s 8.02 HSR here in 2016.
  • Another Bullis Triple: The Potomac, MD powerhouse girls smashed national records in the 4x200 (their own) at 1:34.75 and 4x55 SHR at 30.44, then defended their 4x4 title in near-meet-record time – all adding to their NBNO triple last June.
  • Florida Flashes: Freshman sensation Tamari Davis joined Schwartz as Sunshine Staters atop the podium, sweeping the 60 dash in a meet and frosh class record 7.25 – and the 200 in 23.42 (after a US#1 and frosh record 23.24 qualifier).
  • Welcome to the Jungle: The Jungle (aka Loudoun Valley HS, VA) started Saturday by crushing the 4x1 Mile HSR (17:01.82) – having regrouped after a tough DMR loss Friday – then finished it with a blazing 7:39.30 4x800, #2 all-time.

  

  • Second to One: In addition to Schwartz and Jones, Zachary Bradford (18-1/2 PV), Anna Hall (4,054 pts Pentathlon), and Brentwood HS (TN) (9:56.31 boys' DMR) all achieved performances that elevated them to #2 all-time. Sixteen others had top-5 all-time-level performances.
  • Repeat/Threepeat: Four of the five individual defending champs from ’17 were victorious this time, including pentathletes Hall and Kyle Garland, plus Brodey Hasty (2 mile) and Jasmine Moore (triple jump). Meanwhile, North Rockland’s girls (NY) won their 3rd straight DMR title (all with Katelyn Tuohy anchoring).
  • Lords of the Rings: Moore now has four individual NBN titles (and championship rings), two indoor and two outdoor, while Tuohy – also this year’s 2M champ – has six NBN rings: Four from DMR anchors (in and out), plus two individual.

Recent News for the 2019 Season

All updates for the season

Emerging Elite vs Championship

The Championship races are for those who have made the qualifying standards for those events. The Emerging Elite is for those who have not quite made those standards. The Emerging Elite Division is open to any high school athlete who has made the Emerging Elite standards, whether they be Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors or Seniors.

The idea is that, eventually, an Emerging Elite athlete will join the elite ranks, but has not yet attained that status. We have had this division in place for several years now in the outdoor version of this meet. A prime example is that of Kyle Merber. He won the Emerging Elite mile as a junior in 2007 in 4:15.95 (The championship mile was won in 4:03.33). The next year he was New York State 1600m Champion. And in his Sophomore year at Columbia U, he ran 3:58.62 for a mile! Similarly, Megan Goethals was the Emerging Elite mile champion in 2008 in 4:59.26. In 2009, she became the Foot Locker National Champion in cross-country.
