The fixed time schedule will be communicated before the meet. These events, along with Fridays open events will provide an opportunity for non-qualifiers, relay legs, etc. to be a part of the meet.

Track Events: All track events are timed finals.

Field Events: Shot put, discus, long jump, and triple jump will be contested with 3 jumps/throws, with the top 9 athletes advancing to finals.

Pole Vault, Long Jump, Triple Jump, Shot Put, and Discus will contest an open section (no awards, non-scoring) on Friday night with the Invitational sections on Saturday. All field events, both open and invitational require a qualifying mark.
