HOOSIERS HOST BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIPS

Field Championships at Harry Gladstein Fieldhouse. Action will
get under way on Saturday, February 26 at 10 a.m. and then resume
on Sunday, February 27 at 10:20 a.m.
First Time Since 1990
This year marks the first time since 1990 that Indiana has hosted
the conference's indoor track & field championships. That
year Indiana won the championship (98.5 points) followed by Ohio
State (82.5), Illinois (81) and Purdue (77).
Six-time All-American Bob Kennedy won the mile, 3,000 meters
and 5,000 meters while four-time All-American Glenn Terry captured
the 200 meters for the Hoosiers.
Indiana University is hosting a special Big Ten championship
page. Complete meet results will be made available on the web
following each day's action.
Marshall Goss is in his second season as the Indiana head men's
track and field coach and program coordinator and is in his 17th
season with the Hoosiers.
In Goss' Words
"We have to run and jump at the top of our game this weekend.
Our kids are peaking at just the right time. This will be a very
competitive meet and we are looking to get ourseleves in between
some teams in the standings."
Hoosiers at Big Ten Championships
Last season the Hoosiers placed fourth at the Big Ten Championship.
Here is a look at how Indiana has faired over the last eight
