After a meeting today (12/6) with the coaches at USAFA, they agreed to add a pentathlon for their high school meet! Entries are limited to 12 athletes per gender. I am in charge of entries for the meet and we want to bring in some of the top athletes in the state and nation for this event. If you or your athlete are/is interested please send me an email as cstrackclub@gmail.com. Athletes are not required to have experience in multi-events, but exposure to the various events is preferred (60h, long jump, shot put, high jump, 800m/1000m).

Interesting move by the Air Force meet. I hope it's a successful venture. It certainly fills a void in the market.
