Methacton's Ryann Krais will find out whether she's actually the nation's top 400-meter hurdler among high school girls.
Delsea's Aaron Younger will get another opportunity to defeat Lakewood's Emanuel Mayers in the boys' intermediate hurdles. Eastern's English Gardner (girls' 100) and Cheltenham's Brandon Bing (boys' 200 and 400) will see where they rank among the nation's elite. And Penncrest's Karen Shump (shot put) will compete for a national title.
Those six area standouts are among about 60 athletes from Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey competing in the Nike Outdoor Nationals. The three-day track and field meet started last night at North Carolina A&T University. It will conclude tomorrow.
