The VA Showcase over four years and eight days of competition has amassed 10 national records, 71 US #1's, and three U20 world records. This year though, could be the best one yet. Not to mention, this meet is now going to be at the new Virginia Beach Sports Center, the new home of NCAA Nationals for four years.
Meet management has given MileSplit the exclusive early look into some of the big names and club teams attending and it has us hopeful there is at least one meet to look forward to this indoor season.
Out of all the elite athletes and club teams entered, there are a few that need to be previewed with two months to go but you can expect us to give you updates with more entries the second we hear more from meet management.
Highlighting the early entries are Kayla Davis, Rheinhardt Harrison, Michaela Rose, Justin Braun, Jayson Ward, Shawnti Jackson, Malcolm Johnson Jr, Brooke Rauber, Juliette Whittaker, Roisin Willis, Makayla Paige, Sophia Gorriaran, Taylor James, Na'Taja Ballard, Tess Stapleton, Alexander Nunley, and many others.
Team wise there are also a few club powerhouses already entered. Some of those include Bullis Track Club, Team Motor City, South Dade Express, and many others including club teams from VA, MD, DC, NC, SC, PA, NY, MI, KY, IL, NJ, OH, FL, WI, TN, RI, TX, CT, MA, and CO.
Meet management wanted to stress that this year's event is only open to club teams and unattached athletes. The meet will be similar to National Scholastic's Indoor Nationals in the way that club teams and unattached athletes compete.
