North Carolina high schoolers were given a special opportunity today at the Eddie Smith Field House on the UNC campus. Normally, there is only 1 indoor meet actually held inside the state's borders, however, UNC graciously opened their doors to a second meet today. The fields weren't nearly as large as next week's Durham Striders HS Invitational, but that didn't limit the top performances. Here's a breakdown of the top performances based on the top US rankings.(as of 1/9/10 @ 6:00 pm)
SE Raleigh's Dannielle Davis has run 8.24 indoors in the 55m hurdles. Her time is ranked among the top 10 in the United States.
The state's largest indoor meet has huge numbers once again.
Meet may be canceled due to lack of entries!
