As noted in the thread title, all the other (individual) track and field events will be contested next weekend. Best of luck to the 5 Buffs competing at Pac 12's this weekend, as well as the throwers at the Air Force meet! (I assume the later are attempting to improve their season bests to get in better flights (is that what they're called?) next weekend.) GO BUFFS!!!!!!!

Edit- Wanted to add links to the official webpages where outdoor season bests are kept. This is important because, as from what I've read (see http://www.ustfccca.org/meets-results/ncaa-championship-qualifying-criteria#d1OTF for the full qualifying procedures.) - For multi-event athletes, the top 24 marks in the country by a designated date (usually right after conference championships complete for all the teams) for each gender get to go to the NCAA championships and For all other individual events, the top 48 times, distances or heights in each preliminary region (west and east) by athletes who accept entry for each event by a designated date (usually right after conference championships complete for all the teams) get to go to the NCAA preliminaries to try and qualify for the championships. For the 4X100M and 4X400 meter relays, it's the Top 24 times who accept entry in each of the 2 regions that qualify for the preliminaries. Links are- For multi-events (National bests; since there are no multi-event marks yet as I type this in mid-March, the links are to the generic lists for all events for each gender as of now.) - Men's Decathlon- https://www.tfrrs.org/lists/2568/2019_NCAA_Division_I_Outdoor_Qualifying/2019/o?gender=m Women's Heptathlon - https://www.tfrrs.org/lists/2568/2019_NCAA_Division_I_Outdoor_Qualifying/2019/o?gender=f For other events (West region bests) - Men's - https://www.tfrrs.org/lists/2570/2018_NCAA_Div._I_West_Outdoor_Qualifying_List/2019/o?gender=m Women's - https://www.tfrrs.org/lists/2570/2019_NCAA_Div._I_West_Outdoor_Qualifying/2019/o?gender=f Both genders events listed/ combined - https://www.tfrrs.org/lists/2570.html (As I pasted this edit March 16th, 2019, the season is still very young as to athletes working towards their best marks, so it's often more helpful to look at LAST season's marks to get a ROUGH idea of what marks MIGHT be needed to qualify for regionals. Last year's marks for Western men can be found at https://www.tfrrs.org/lists/2281/2018_NCAA_Div._I_West_Outdoor_Qualifying_List/2018/o?gender=m, while the women's is at https://www.tfrrs.org/lists/2281/2018_NCAA_Div._I_West_Outdoor_Qualifying_List/2018/o?gender=f .) Further note- The NCAA also allows a couple type of conversions be used to calculate the top marks- For a few distances on the track, marks in NCAA non-standard races are converted up or down to be used for qualifying purposes. (For example- times in mile races outdoor can be converted to 1500M times.) The conversion factors for this are at http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/NCAA_Track_Event_Conversions.pdf . Also, the NCAA has a SEPARATE APP (see http://www.ustfccca.org/meets-results/ncaa-championship-qualifying-criteria#d1OTF for the link) that converts all track times for events competed at altitude to official "sea level" times. (It's the converted times that show up in the above linked-to tfrrs.org top marks lists.) In general, middle distance (800M) and longer races run at altitude calculate to FASTER "sea level" times, while shorter races (400M and less) at altitude calculate to SLOWER times at sea level.
