I very specifically said at the conference meet. If you have a potential national point scorer, you don’t have them do a two day outdoor hep or dec plus several open events. That will usually not allow enough time for them to peak at nationals. If they aren’t likely to score at nationals then yeah, chase all the conference points you can, avoiding injury.
I can name an NCAA dec champ who did the full dec plus five individual events at his conference meet.
It all depends on the athlete.
