Another Look at the Outdoor Lists

Photo by Dan Grossman

Outdoor Heps are this upcoming weekend, are you ready for it?

HepsTrack will be there, reporting as quickly as we can on results and meet progress on both days of the meet.  Follow facebook, this website, or twitter for results, updates, and photos.  The Outdoor Heps schedule is up under the Championships tab.

Until then, we will be posting information this week on where the league stands, some independent predictions on how this weekend will go, and some official event previews.

Since the last time HepsTrack posted the top performances, there have been a number of changes in the field events and some changes in the sprints and mid-distance events.  This time around, we have included the relays and multi-event performances to provide a basis for any posts we present later in the week.  This listing does not include any predictions for this weekend.

Full listings can be found at Track and Field Results Reporting System.
