In the 2-mile, Garrett Heath will face off against a Bowerman Track Club quartet of Chris Derrick, German Fernandez, Ryan Hill and Evan Jager.

Hasay and Rowbury are entered in the 2-mile as well and look to face stiff competition from Brie Felnagle and Liz Costello.

The women’s pole vault will be a show-stopper, as U.S. leader and NCAA record holder Demi Payne has entered into the meet as a tune-up for the NCAA Indoor Championships. She will look to take the title from defending champion Mary Saxer and two-time Olympian Jenn Suhr. In the men’s pole vault, multi-time NCAA Champion Sam Kendricks takes on the likes of Olympians Jack Whitt and Jordan Scott.

He’ll take on a strong field that includes two-time Olympian Jesse Williams, Nick Ross and Ricky Robertson. On the women’s side, 2014 USATF Outdoor champion and Olympian Chaunte Lowe and five-time Olympian Amy Acuff headline the women’s high jump field.
