The three-day meet was scheduled to start Thursday at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood, but heavy snow caused unsafe conditions and forced a delay until Saturday.

The meet is being held over two days beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday and  finishing at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday, the Colorado High School Activities Association said.

Meet officials have scratched preliminaries in running events, with them becoming times finals. Field events will have four throws and jumps without preliminaries.

Things will get started again early Sunday, with gates opening at 7 a.m.
