    Bloomington, Ind. - After getting settled in the first two weeks of the school year, the Indiana University men's track and field team will start its fall practice sessions on Monday, Sept. 16. IU returns nearly everyone from last year's team that received a national power ranking of fifth in indoor competition and 10th during the outdoor season.

    "We are really looking foward to getting started," Indiana head coach Marshall Goss said. "We lost only 12 points from last year's team and feel like this is going to be a quality year. Our athletes have been working hard this summer and I'm excited to see how they have progressed."

    The 2003 Indiana team will be headlined by a Big Ten champion sprinter and a pair of the nation's best triple jumpers.

    Junior Contrell Ash swept the 100m and 200m titles at the Big Ten Outdoor meet in 2001 on his way to Big Ten Frshman of the Year honors. After battling injury as a sophomore, he returns and is healthy heading into 2003.

    Sophomore Aarik Wilson and senior Hassan Reddick will lead IU in the long and triple jumps. Wilson finished as the NCAA runner-up in the triple jump at the NCAA Outdoor Championships and was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year in his inaugural season. Reddick was an Indoor All-American last season and finished third at the conference outdoor meet in the triple.

    IU also returns Chris Powers, who was an NCAA Indoor qualifier in the 3,000m last season and John Jefferson, who earned Indoor All-America honors in the mile.

    Coach Goss also welcomes thrower Adam Judge, a transfer from Southern Illinois. Judge, who is orginally from Des Moines, Iowa, was an Outdoor All-American last season in the shot put.

    The Hoosier track and field squad will start off practing four days a week before changing to their regular schedule of 20 hours a week in October. xt text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text
