The initial batch of entries for next weekend's New Balance Indoor Nationals have been released and can be found here.

Baltimore Poly senior William Henderson currently owns the top US time in the 55 meter dash (6.31) and ranks second in both the long jump (24'6.50) and 55 meter hurdles (7.27). He will be shooting for three indoor national championships next weekend and cement his status as one of the top athletes in the country.

WATCH Eric Allen drop a MD #1 and US #7 200 at the University of Kentucky Invitational!

Four of the top six boys in the 300 dash this season will be squaring off in the championship 200 at NBIN. Allen currently leads all Maryland runners in the 200 (21.33) and 300 (33.49), but watch out for Good Counsel's Darnell Pratt who owns a 20.94 career personal best in the event.

WATCH Netterville's precursor to his state title - a 6.41 win in the 55 at the 4A West Regionals that earned him a MD #3 mark!

Not only will this be the last high school meet for Northwest senior Josh Netterville (he plays baseball in the spring), it may be his last time competing on the track. He is entered in three championship events (60, 200 and long jump) and will look to go out with a bang.

The top three triple jumpers in the state are set to match up next weekend at NBIN, and both the MD #1 and #2 holders hail from the same school. Suitland seniors Isa Bynum and Marcellus Pettus are the only boys to have jumped 46 feet this winter and hope to become just the fifth and sixth boys to clear 47 feet since 2000 (according to MileSplit's database).

The Oxon Hill boys will be busy next weekend as seniors Aaron Robinson and Gary Ross are set to compete in three relays in addition to the championship 400. The 3A indoor team state champions also showed their depth by qualifying two separate teams for the championship sprint medley relay.
