NACAC U-23

Where and when are the NACAC u-23 Championships going to be held? Can we expect our top NCAA athletes such as Knight and Heppenstall to come and win some hardware?

    Location and date haven't been announced yet. I highly doubt Knight will be there, Heppenstall possibly depending on timing but I still wouldn't count on it.

    Knight and Heppenstall more likely to go to NACAC senior over nacac u 23. I think its more likely to see at least one if not both of them at common wealths

    Qualification for CW is pretty much over as qualification was this past outdoor season for the team. And the standard for the 800 was 1:45.9, Heppenstal didn't run that this season.

    Many US Colleges do not allow their athletes to compete during the summer even if it is to represent their country in an event such as this. Yet another reason that US scholarship has some negative aspects.

    The bottom-tier colleges do this, any US college with a serious track program want their athletes to represent their country and their university.

    Several of my friends, teammates, and colleagues coach at NCAA Division 1 schools and NONE would ever tell their athletes to not compete for their country. In fact, competing for your country is a huge recruiting and selling point for the track programs.

    If fact, the athletic departments of the schools list all their Olympians, World Champions, National, and Jr. National athletes on their webpages.

    Typically what happens during a major Games cycle is that the coach and athlete plan to peak for the Games while scoring at the conference and the NCAAs.

    Could you please name the schools that told the athletes not to compete, I would like to know.

    This almost never happens. I could see some distance teams discouraging some from doing it for cross country purposes, but in almost every case they see it as worth the positive publicity.
