Back in September 2012, the Ivy League coaches had voted to change the Heps Championship lineup that would take into affect in 2014.
Well, those changes will NOT be made this year. Hepstrack received word over the holidays (and confirmed today) that the coaches opted to modify these proposed changes during their annual meeting this past fall and have not brought anything to the athletic directors for their final approval.
So the upcoming indoor and outdoor Heps Championships will have the same events contested as they have been for the last few years (yes, including the rarely-contested preliminary rounds of the sprints and hurdles and the outdoor women’s 3,000m).
Coaches are still talking about changing the Heps Championships lineup, but these changes would result in having the same events contested for both the men and women’s championships. We cannot confirm at this time what these changes would be as they could change again before the final vote. We will report any changes once the athletic directors have voted.
The 2014 Indoor Heps Championships schedule will be released in a few weeks – stay tuned.
