CT Indoor Season Wrap-up: So Much Good Stuff in 2022

CT Girls at Nationals

Lots of athletes headed down to either the New Balance Indoor Nationals at the Armory or Nike Indoor Nationals at Ocean Breeze on March 11-13 to compete in their events. Below are results for athletes who placed in the top 30 in a Championship event, in the top 20 for a Rising Stars\Emerging Elite event, or top 10 in a Freshman event. Most athletes competed at only one of the two Nationals, but  a few such as Hillhouse's Olivia O'Connor who got to double dip in the weight events were at both meets.
