2017 NAIA Men's and Women's Indoor Track and Field National Championships

AmpliVox Sound Systems was a proud sponsor of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) 2017 Indoor Track & Field National Championships.

The 52nd Annual Men's and 37th Annual Women's Indoor Track & Field National Championships was held at Gentry Field in Johnson City, Tenn on March 2nd - 4th. This is the second-consecutive season the national championships have been held in Johnson City.

"AmpliVox is happy to partner with the NAIA again this year," noted Don Roth, AmpliVox CEO.

“"NAIA brings the power of intercollegiate competition to students at smaller schools throughout the nation. We admire the association’s emphasis on building character through athletics, especially through its Champions of Character program".

Over 140 programs competed in the 2017 National Championship. The action started featuring 16 athletes in the women’s pentathlon, followed by the men’s heptathlon. The national championships continued through Saturday, with the preliminary track events wrapping up on Friday. Saturday featured the finals in all of the track and field events.

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is a governing body of small athletics programs that is dedicated to character-driven intercollegiate athletics.

Founded in 1937, they have a long and illustrious history of promoting opportunities to play while pursuing a college education.

Each year more than 60,000 student-athletes have the opportunity to play college sports at NAIA member institutions.

AmpliVox supports the NAIA as they pursue the development of character-driven athletics, giving students the chance to share their interests and talents in an atmosphere that builds on those values.

To ensure that all members on the field and in the crowd can clearly hear the officiating announcements, AmpliVox provided the SW662 Deluxe Wireless Quad Horn Half-Mile Hailer Kit to assist the NAIA's public address needs.
