IAAM/MIAA Championships (MD) - 1/27

What will Dalton Hengst do next? The Foot Locker finalist is famous for his epic finishes and he most recently won the Yale Track Classic in 8:28, the fastest time in the nation this year.

Last Chance Invitational (AL) - 1/27-28

Is Trey Cunningham ready to break the national record in the 60m hurdles? He ranks No. 3 all-time with his PR of 7.59, just off Grant Holloway's 7.53 national record. The Florida State commit will also race the 60m dash, where he ranks US #7 this season. Four-time national champion Jayla Kirkland looks to improve her national ranking in the 60m (US #4) and her US #1 time of 54.43 in the 400m. 

Virginia Tech Premier High School Invitational (VA) - 1/27-28

The nation's top-ranked relay squads from Western Branch, Va. and Bullis, Md. come back out to play in the girls and boys 4x400m. Bullis will face off against top ten national teams Grassfield and Southeast Raleigh in the girls 4x200m. No. 6 ranked Lauryn Ghee of Grassield has her hands full in a top-notch 300m against US #8 Britton Wilson and US #10 Masai Russell, all of whom have run under 39.3 this year. The boys 300m is even better, however, as US #2 Micaiah Harris and US #3 Eric Allen, Jr. get a rematch after pushing Tyrese Cooper to the national record at the VA Showcase.

Four Foot Locker finalists star in the distance events. Maria Coffin and Niamh Schumacher, who were 11th and 15th in San Diego, will race the 2 Mile, while Abby Green (21st) will race the mile vs. Libby Davidson, who placed sixth at Foot Locker in both 2014 and 2015 but missed 2016 due to injury.

Wildcat Classic (KY) - 1/28

Rising sprint star Brooke Raglin will race the 200m. Defending 800m champion Mikah Bailey of Dunbar is back, and looks to get closer to his 1:53 PR. Kentucky cross country state champion Michaela Reinhart is going for the tough 800m/1600m/3200m triple.

NXN All-American Katherine Lee is entered in the mile, 2 mile and 4xMile relay. The breakout cross country star ranks US #2 in the 3K already this season behind only Kate Murphy with her 9:37 best. She also took down Villanova commit Rachel McArthur to win the Marine Corps Holiday Classic mile in 4:53.05. 

Pennsylvania is sending a few of their top athletes to New York for the deep competition, including Georgetown commit Olivia Arizin in the 400m and 800m and USC commit Chanel Brissett in the 55m and 200m. Brissett is one of the nation's all-time great short hurdlers and competed in the 100m hurdles at the Olympic Trials last summer, but she's testing out her speed this weekend with flat events.
