    HOOSIER MEN EARN RANKING
    The Indiana men's track and field team earned a No. 13 ranking in the Trackwire Top 25 poll issued Jan. 17. Individually, three Hoosiers picked up rankings on Trackwire's Dandy Dozen list.

    To open the 2006 indoor slate, the Hoosiers have recorded 12 individual first-place finishes for the No. 13 ranking. IU shares the ranking with Kansas. Additionally, Indiana is one of three Big Ten teams in this week's rankings. Wisconsin ranks third and Michigan sits at t-15th. David Neville earned two Dandy Dozen rankings in both the 200m and 400m. Sean Jefferson, who broke Jim Spivey's 23-year old record in the mile last season, claimed a No. 1 ranking in the mile. Stephen Haas recorded a No. 8 ranking in both the 3,000m and 5,000m. Haas is the school record holder and an All-American in both events.

    INDIANA INSTALLS BANKED TRACK
    Indiana University's Gladstein Fieldhouse makes a conversion to a Mondo-surfaced banked track during the 2006 indoor track and field season. The 200m track, built by Mondo in Italy, saw its first use for the inaugural IAAF World Indoor Championships in March 1987 and then hosted the NCAA Div. I and Div. II Indoor Track and Field Championships annually through 1999.
