The Last Chance Invitational is the last regular season meet for Alabama and the only two-day meet Georgia and Mississippi athletes are sanctioned for. 

Let's check out some of the people and teams to watch:

Maxwell Hardin (Auburn, AL) -- Hardin has missed most of the indoor season after an injury during cross country. Seeded at 4:17, he clocked an indoor PR last season of 4:22 before running 4:14 outdoors. He previously ran 1:59 in the 800 at the MLK.

William Shelton (Birmingham Parker, AL) -- Shelton has yet to run an 800m this season but has been consistently hitting sub-50 400m marks. He ran 1:56 outdoors last year but has yet to attempt the 800m during indoor this season. He is seeded at 1:54.

Marcus Guidry (Alexander, GA) -- Guidry is seeded at 1:53, which is what he ran at the RunningLane Track Championships last year. He has not competed this indoor season, but since Georgia has a small window to compete, this is his first opportunity. He should be among the favorites. 

Hoover High School (AL) -- Hoover's 4x400 is the current AL No. 1 performance and the boys compete during session #2 on Saturday. They will be going head to head with Alabama No. 2 Vestavia and Alabama No. 3 Scottsboro.

Scottsboro High School (AL) -- The squad's 4x800 is ranked U.S. No. 1 and the team will be looking to improve their 7:55 from earlier this season.  

Jordan Anthony (Tylertown, MS) -- Anthony is tied for US No. 4 in the 60m.  His 6.77 from earlier in January at The VA Showcase (above) has earned him the top seed in the event this weekend.

Alex Leath (Vestavia Hills, AL) -- Leath is the top seed in the 800m this weekend. He ran 1:58 earlier this season at the MLK, but he doubled in the 1,600m (4:25) the same day.  This weekend he is only in the 800m. He ran 1:52 in the event last season.
