BOSTON, MA, December 8, 2010 – Global athletic leader New Balance is pleased to announce an official multi-year partnership with the National Scholastic Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the New Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory in New York City in the New Balance Indoor Nationals. The event will bring together the best indoor track and field high school athletes from across the country for a weekend of intense competition.
At the January Meeting of the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association (KTCCCA) it was decided that any Kentucky high school athlete who chooses to compete at New Balance Indoor Nationals, New Balance Outdoor Nationals, or USA Junior Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2011 can seek reimbursement for some of their costs to compete. Athletes who compete in one of the New Balances National Championships, which are being held on the east coast in New York and North Carolina, are eligible for up to $250. USA Junior Nationals are in Eugene, Oregon this year and athletes can receive up to $500 back. This is strictly a reimbursement based on the athlete supplying receipts showing their costs of staying overnight, eating, and traveling to the meet. Entry Standards are at the link below: http://www.nationalscholastic.org/indoornats/guidelines/ More details on how to apply and who to contact will be put out at a later time.

NEW BALANCE INDOOR NATIONALS - ENTRIES NOW POSTED
The US#1 Lincoln-Sudbury DMR team will take a shot at their first national title Saturday at the Armory in New York.
Ahmed Bile of Annandale and Jeremy Greenwald of Grassfield (pictured above by Ryan Kelly) battled it out for the AAA state 1000 meter title two weeks ago with Bile winning in a thrilling race with both runners timed at 2:28. They will not be facing each other head to head at the indoor nationals, but in separate races will look to prove themselves as the best distance runners of the indoor season from Virginia with Bile in the fast section of the 800 and Greenwald in the fast section of the mile at the Armory. A list of all Virginian boys (links to athlete profiles) entered currently in this upcoming weekend's New Balance Indoor Nationals at the New York Armory. Similar list for the Virginia girls to follow. MileStat.com will be on-site with coverage from the Armory.
The Bethel girls ran one of the fastest flat track 4x400 meter relay times in the nation with their 3:51.96 victory at the state meet. The New Balance Nationals this upcoming weekend will be their first opportunity to run faster on a banked track (at the New York Armory), which has the Bethel quartet thinking of breaking their own school record (3:48.91 at 2009 Virginia Tech Invite) and potentially the Virginia high school indoor state record of 3:46.91 by the 2006 Landstown squad at the indoor nationals.

NEW YORK – The best indication that Aisling Cuffe was on pace had nothing to do with time. The Stanford-bound senior wanted to listen to her body and she knew her legs would pass the message.
