Wednesday is the final day to register for the State Games of America, which will be held in and around Lincoln and Omaha July 28th through August second. Nebraska is hosting the national event which replaces the Cornhusker State Games for this year.
Dave Mlnarik is executive director of the Cornhusker State Games and says they are hoping to draw athletes from all 50 states. Maine, Vermont and West Virginia are the only states without a registered athlete as of Monday morning. The all-time record for athletes at the State Games of America is around 10 thousand 300. Mlnarik says their goal is to draw 18 thousand competitors.
Former Creighton star and Chicago Bull Doug McDermott will serve as Grand Marshall of the SGA Parade of Athletes.
