Welcome to the 2014 New Balance Nationals Outdoor

Another great event took place in June, 2013 at North Carolina A+T U in Greensboro, NC. Once again New Balance was our title sponsor and their presence was felt in many ways, especially with their interaction of the athletes.

There was one national record, 34 US leaders (including athletes who were US leaders but did not necessarily get their mark at this event) and 33 meet records.

There is one event elimination and one event addition for 2014. The Octathon has been eliminated because it will no longer be part of the IAAF World Youth Championships. The World Youth Championship will contest the decathlon in the future. The freshman triple jump has been added. That is in keeping with our on going mission to help develop that event.

Emerging Elite vs Championship

The Championship races are for those who have made the qualifying standards for those events. The Emerging Elite is for those who have not quite made those standards. The Emerging Elite Division is open to any high school athlete who has made the Emerging Elite standards, whether they be Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors or Seniors.

The idea is that, eventually, an Emerging Elite athlete will join the elite ranks, but has not yet attained that status. We have had this division in place for several years now in the outdoor version of this meet. A prime example is that of Kyle Merber. He won the Emerging Elite mile as a junior in 2007 in 4:15.95 (The championship mile was won in 4:03.33). The next year he was New York State 1600m Champion. And, this year, his Sophomore year at Columbia U, he ran 3:58.62 for a mile! Similarly, Megan Goethals was the Emerging Elite mile champion in 2008 in 4:59.26. In 2009, she became the Foot Locker National Champion in cross-country.
