There is absolutely no denying that Virginia is home to the very best athletes in the entire nation this year. So dominant in fact that we as a state could sweep the boys' 100-5K and the 110H, Long Jump,Triple Jump, and many of the relays as well. The girls are no slouches either with US #1 relay teams and of course some really great distance, hurdle, and sprint talent.
Here is our preview for who we both think will be Virginia's highest finisher and our national champion contenders. We will start with serious national championship contenders and work our way through other events with high finishers.
Noah & Josephus Lyles will not be competing this weekend. Josephus is unfortunately still battling injuries and Noah is resting for World Juniors and the Olympic Trials.
