Let's talk about The VA Showcase. Each year national records are broken and big times are run, but what makes next weekend so special is how so many elite athletes come from across the country to do it all at the same meet.
This year will be no different, with thousands of athletes from every indoor track state slated to compete.
For reference of how good this meet is, check out the meet records for the boys and girls historically at this meet.
