Last Time Out
In the season opener at Michigan, the men's team captured a win over Michigan, Kent State and Michigan State. The Hoosiers totaled 172 points to beat the host Wolverines by 15 points.
On the women's side, Indiana finished second to UM. Indiana scored 151.50 points to top Kent State (116) and Michigan State (82.5).
Senior Rachelle Boone and sophomore Aarik Wilson were both double winners last Saturday at Michigan. Boone took top honors in the 60m (7.46) and the 200m (24.31). Wilson finished first in both the long jump (7.45m./24-05.50) and the triple jump. In the triple, his jump of 52-03.25 exceeded the NCAA Provisional mark (51-02.25).
In her very first outing of the season, senior Danielle Carruthers ran an 8.33 in the 60m hurdles to take the win at the Michigan Quad. Her time met the NCAA Provisional mark. Last season, Carruthers' best outing in the 60h was a time of 7.92 at the USTCA Challenge on Feb. 8, 2002.
Aarik Wilson also turned in a provisional performance in the triple jump with a mark of 15.93m (52-03.25). Wilson's indoor personal-best in the event of 26.23m (53-3) came at last season's NCAA Championships where he finished fourth.
Both teams compete at Illinois next Saturday, Feb. 1, in a meet against the Ilini and a pair of teams from the Big 12 Conference, Baylor and Missouri.
