Meet Information

WATCH LIVE ON MILESPLIT!Weston Twilight Invitational 2017Saturday, May 6, 20177:00 11:00 PMAt REGIS COLLEGE, WESTONThis year marks the 20th edition of our twilight meet. We will hold the meet at Regis College, as we did in 2016. It will be a busy day at Regis on May 6: graduation in the latemorning/early afternoon, a conference championship lacrosse game in the mid-afternoon, and our meet in the evening. I am grateful to Regis for being willing to continue to host our meet despite all these other events on campus. However, due to the lacrosse game, we will be delaying our start until 7 PM. Since we want to get done by 11:00, we will be limiting the number of entries in each event. Entry limits will be described below. If we get a favorable vote at theWeston Town meeting this May, construction will begin on our new track facility on June 1, and well be back at WHS next year, which will allow us much more flexibility in terms of start time, number of entries accepted, etc. For this year we will just need to be patient and accept that themeet will be limited.Weston Twilight will be LIVE on @MileSplit click on link above.**This meet has been sanctioned by the MIAA**Parking:Regis College does not have sufficient parking for a meet of this size. As a result all buses and many cars will need to park at Weston HS, about 1000 meters up the road. We will berunning shuttle buses all throughout the meet from the Regis track to the Weston parking lots. (Ill try to make sure the driver stays to the end of the meet this year so I dont have to use my Insight as a makeshift shuttle bus!) Both buses and cars can drop off passengers at the Regis track but then will need to proceed to Weston HS to park. Please dont arrive on campus before 6PM! The lacrosse game will be on the field inside the track, you probably cant get into the track area anyway, and Regis parking will likely be full.Seating:Spectators and coaches should be advised that there is virtually no seating at the Regis track. There is also limited space for tents, and tents will only be allowed in designated areas.Entry Details:(1) All entries will go through the www.directathletics.com website. If you were at the meet last year, you should already be scheduled into the meet on Direct Athletics. If you are not, contact me and Ill create the link.(2) Entry Deadline: midnight, Wednesday, May 3.(3) Entry Limits:(a) An athlete may be entered in a maximum of three events.(b) All athletes entered in individual events must have met the qualifying standards in their events.(4) Entry Guidelines:We will be limiting the number of accepted entries this year in accordance with the table below. I will open the entries for viewing on Direct Athletics, as was done for the indoor MIAA meets, so you can see how deep the fields are in each event. Since we are limiting fields, I haveput up guideline standards based on last years entries. Meeting the guidelines doesnt guarantee acceptance, we will ultimately limit the field in each event to a certain number of athletes. As we will be limiting field and may not accept everyone, we are requiring coaches toenter a date/place for each athletes qualifying mark. INDOOR TIMES/DISTANCES FROMTHE 2017 SEASON WILL BE ACCEPTED. Indoor time conversions must be done using theUSATFCCCA standard conversion factors, available atwww.ustfccca.org/assets/track-event-conversions-st.... . If you use an indoor performance, use the CONVERTED time as the entry time and enter the date and place of the indoor meet at which the performance was achieved. See the bottom of the entry standard list for indoor distances that may be used. PLEASE BE HONEST! Well be checking some of the entry times, but not all of them, so were relying on all of you to submit accurate performances.Girls Guideline Boys Guideline Number Accepted100 Meter 13.5 11.7 32200 Meter 28.0 23.8 32400 Meter 1:04.0 53.8 32800 Meter 2:28.0 2:05.0 361 Mile 5:38.0 4:44.0 362 Mile 12:00.0 10:05.0 18100 Hurdles 18.0 17.5 32400 Hurdles 1:14.0 1:02.5 32Steeple enter a mile or 2 mile time to enter the steeple top 18 accepted 184 x 200 Top 16 teams Top 16 teams 16SMR Top 16 teams Top 16 teams 16DMR Top 16 teams Top 16 teams 16High Jump 48 58 24PV 80 100 20LJ 150 190 24TJ 310 380 24Shot 290 400 24Disc 750 1050 24Jav 820 1250 24To qualify for the 200m, athletes may use the indoor 300m, with qualifying times of 44.8for girls and 38.08 for boys.To qualify for the 400m, athletes may use the indoor 600m, with qualifying times of46.33 for girls and 38.53 for boys.To qualify for the 800m, athletes may use the indoor 600m or the indoor 1000m, withqualifying times of 1:48.67 (600) and 3:18.0 (1000) for girls and 1:30.60 (600) and 2:45.0 (1000)for boys.
