USATF national record holders and dozens of past USATF Hershey Junior Olympic champions look to defend their titles against the top youth athletes in the country. Yasmin Lopez (Pacific Coast Shock Waves), last year broke her older sister’s national record in winning the 1500m in addition to winning the 800m title. This week Lopez is scheduled to compete in the 8 & Under 800m, 1500m and 4x400m relay as she looks to defend her 2018 titles.


Returning USATF Junior Olympic champion Rhoan Kaulder II (Maximum Velocity Track Club) moves up to the 11-12 division after setting a new boy’s 9-10 200m (25.64) national record in 2018. In the qualifying round last year, Kaulder clocked 25.69 before claiming the USATF title and breaking his days old national record in 25.64. Kaulder is set to compete in the 100m, 200m and long jump.


2018 girl’s 9-10 triathlon champion and national record holder, Ashlyn Hudson (Bull City Express), moves up to the 11-12 division and has a busy week of competition in the pentathlon, 80m hurdles and high jump.


Prentice Jones Jr. (Tri City Jaguars) who set the USATF national 8 & Under boys 400m record 1:02.48 last year, returns in the 9-10 age group 400m, 4x100m relay and 4x400m relay.
