The Scoop: Recapping A Massive Weekend Of Action At New Balance Nationals Indoor

Perhaps the surprise winner of New Balance was another athlete from Brentwood. 

Keep in mind, though, Jeff Charvet, was from Heritage High, a California high school. 

Coming off a huge win in the 800m during the California outdoor season in 1:51.07, Charvet once again dropped a personal best, surging to the line in 1:50.91, which is a new US No. 2 time. 

Maybe it wasn't so surprising, considering California is one of the nation's best track states and a state title in any event is enough cred to warrant a resume. But Charvet only competed in two previous indoor races at 800m before New Balance, and his best came in February with a 1:54.10. 

Despite that, he out kicked solid efforts from Green Hope (NC) High's Ian Delgado (1:51.06) and Passaic (NJ) High's Luis Peralta (1:51.74).
