2013 New Balance Outdoor Nationals Coverage of Virginians


A strong group of Virginia's elite will make the trip to North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro, North Carolina to compete against some of the best high school track & field athletes in the nation at the 2013 New Balance Outdoor Nationals. MileStat.com will not be on-site, but a quality on-site team from the MileSplit National team and other state webmasters will by carrying the coverage load this weekend.


Can Oscar Smith's Michael Cherry repeat as the 400 meter outdoor national champion and break 46 seconds? He comes in as the US leader from his 46.02 PR performance at the VHSL Group AAA State Championships. Cherry will also be featured in the 200 meter dash this weekend which he attempted at the indoor nationals back in March to become a double sprints champion in but fell just short as a national runner-up in the 200 following a national title in the 400 at the New York Armory.


After finishing as a national runner-up twice in his senior year at Foot Locker Nationals in cross country and at the New Balance Indoor Nationals two mile, Chantilly's Sean McGorty is due to win his first national title this weekend in the two mile. Not in the two mile field on Saturday night is Edward Cheserek, who defeated McGorty in those two national championship races, which leaves a much larger window for the US #2 3200m ranked McGorty (8:46.07 personal best) to grab first place in Greensboro.
