RICHMOND, VA - MileStat, MileSplit, Virginia Tech, and Meet Management are excited to announce that the 2015 installment of the Virginia Tech High School Invitational will be streamed live across the entire country. Simply put, this is a big deal!
"The Virginia Tech Invitational every year produces many of the nation's fastest times in the country. It is no secret that some of the very best talent in the country for high school indoor track & field is found within Virginia and neighboring states Maryland and North Carolina. But once you finally get all of those great athletes finally on one of the fastest banked track found in the United states at Virginia Tech, US #1's and top 5 performances will be popping up event after event! We are excited to be working with Virginia Tech and meet director Dan Ward to give us this opportunity to show those national leaderboard shattering performances happen as they happen LIVE to the rest of the country! This is a meet that will be a thriller to watch from start to finish!" - Brandon Miles, MileSplit National Editor, Director of Premium Content.
