2012 Team NSSF for CSI Announced

by Joy Kamani

The National Scholastic Sports Foundation has selected its team of athletes for the 7th Annual Caribbean Scholastic Invitational.  The meet, founded in a partnership between the NSSF and the Puerto Rican Foundation for the Development of the Sport of Athletics (FUPPDA) is slated for June 1-2 at the University of Puerto Rico- Rio Piedras. The purpose of the event is to provide exposure to international competition to US high school athletes who have demonstrated potential to one day represent this country.

Past Team NSSF athletes have included stand-outs such as Jessica Beard, Bianca Knight, Bridgette Owens-Mitchell, Johnny Dutch, Marquise Goodwin Wayne Davis, and most recently, Kendell Williams, Jennifer Madu, Avione Allgood, Aldrich Bailey, Arman Hall, and Devin Field, - all of whom have gone on to represent the US at World Championships, World Juniors, World Youth, Pan-American Games, etc.  We expect to see exceptional performances in the future from this year's team as well.

The team will be accompanied by a full staff of managers, coaches, and medical personnel.  The meet is open to any high school athlete and draws athletes from several Caribbean nations..  For more information please go to the CSI meet page.
