Potential storms stayed away from Weston MA on Saturday as the USATF-NE Open and Masters Track & Field Championship took place at Regis College. All the day's events were contested without delays or postponements as officials efficiently moved competitors through the full meet schedule with only minor tweeks. One Championship Meet record was broken as Ben Thorne (New England Walkers) clocked 12:28.29 in the 3000 meters race walk.
To complete the championship schedule, Sunday found 47 pole vaulters descend on Westborough High School for a day of single event competition. The field was splite into 3 flights and the bar was raised 3 meters from opening height to final miss over 7 hours. The vault was hosted by Patriot Pole Vault Club.
