2015 Stanford Track and Field Invitational meet info now posted

Meet Info:
Tentative Friday Schedule:
Tentative Saturday Schedule:

Looks like the 4 x 800m. relay will not be contested at the Stanford Invite which is a real shame. They will have individual 800m. races now on Saturday.

Noooo! The 4x800m relay is the best event!

Bellarmine has done quite well in 4x800 and as I said in comment, it's a shame they have deleted it from the meet schedule.

Do you think it is related to previous years where there was suspicion of Coaches entering in inflated 4x800 times in order to qualify? My guess is since it is not a standard event in CA, and not run very often by other meets, coaches could enter in times without fear of verification.

My guess is that coaches and athletes have asked why the Stanford Invite doesn't have open 800m. races. It's a very packed schedule so they couldn't add the 800m. without eliminating an event and the 4x800 ended up on the chopping block.

That is my best guess.
