2015 BELLARMINE INVITATIONAL Meet Information
2015 BELLARMINE INVITATIONAL
Owsley Frazier Stadium
Friday-Saturday April 3-4, 2015
ENTRY AND MEET INFORMATION
This year the Bellarmine Invitational will be a two day meet, April 3-4 (Friday-Saturday). The
meet will be conducted in accordance with the new NCAA rules regarding multi-day meets. Last
year we had 30 universities and colleges representing all three NCAA Divisions, the NAIA and
Track: Eight lane 42” lanes (9 lanes straight) Beynon surface - 1/4" pyramid
spikes or Christmas tree spikes only, NO NEEDLE or PIN SPIKES.
The track is located at 2001 Newburg Road.
All events other than the throws will take place at the stadium. We have multi directional pits. All
events at the stadium will be on the Beynon surface.
Throwing Events: All throwing events will take place at our throws venue located behind the
Nolan C. Allen Building at 2120 Newburg Road which is at the stoplight
across from the main entrance to campus. You will park in the
2120 parking lot and walk back to the throws area behind the building.
The throws venue is ¼ mile from the stadium.
Shot, Discus, Hammer – brushed concrete; Javelin – Beynon Surface
Implement weigh-in and certification at the throws venue
Field Events: For the throws and horizontal jumps we will do 4 attempts with no finals. Due to
only having one landing area for the long throws, the number of entries and the new NCAA rules
we feel this change will be in the best interest of the athletes and meet. We may impose
minimum marks in the throws and horizontal jumps based on the number of entries, but going to
4 attempts and adding flights on Friday may alleviate that need. If we impose minimum marks,
we will measure one legal throw/jump for all competitors.
We will measure all field events metrically
We will use the LASAM for all long throws
We will have wind gauge readings for all required events
Opening Heights: Heights: Women’s HJ (4’6”); Men’s HJ (5’8”)
Women’s PV (8’6”); Men’s PV (12’0”)
