Pop quiz. How many separate events make up a heptathlon competition?
If you answered seven, you are either a Greek scholar, or you were one of the 75 or so fans that joined me at Edwards Stadium on the campus of Cal-Berkeley last Sunday to witness the staging of the Pac-10’s Heptathlon and Decathlon Championships. This event is actually part of the overall Pac-10 Track & Field Championships that are being conducted this upcoming weekend at the same venue, but with 17 different activities going on in the heptathlon and decathlon it could get kind of crowded down there on the field. So the best overall athletes at each participating school get their own weekend to showcase their stuff. Except there was nobody there to be show-cased to.
