NEED TO KNOW

The Lyles brothers are on track to make the U.S. Olympic Trials. Noah Lyles has already set a national indoor record at 200 meters, 20.63, this year. Although Noah is a year older, both are seniors and are the sons of former Seton Hall NCAA stars Keisha Caine and Kevin Lyles (a World championships relay gold medalist).

Norman, the 2014-15 Gatorade Boys Track and Field Athlete of the Year, returns after doubling in last season’s California (CIF) State Championship Meet with state records at 200 and 400 meters (the latter a National Federation record-equaling, 45.19).

Noah Lyles and Norman are, respectively, the No. 3 and No. 5 all-time high school 200 meter runners and the two fastest ever as high school juniors.
