    The Coaches
    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.
    Randy Heisler is in his second season as the women's track and field coach and is in his 11th season with the Hoosiers.

    Coaches' Outlook
    Indiana head men's track and field coach and program coordinator Marshall Goss:
    "We are trying to get as many individuals ready to race and compete as possible. We are coming off of some injuries and are working toward getting everyone healthy to compete. This should be a great meet for the spectators as it should be decided by just a few points."
    Indiana head women's track and field coach Randy Heisler:
    "Michigan is the two-time defending Big Ten champions. Last season we competed against them and lost by just 10 points and our team knew that we could compete at that level. Last year we finished third at the Big Ten championship, so we know that we are within striking distance. This will be a good test for us, a win would help immensely, psychologically for this team."

    Looking to Shake the Jinx
    The Indiana women's track and field team will look to shake the jinx of Michigan as the Wolverines swept the Hoosiers in the 90's defeating the women six times in the decade.
    The men have defeated Michigan the last two times the teams have met, including a 150-144.5 victory in a four-team meet last season.

    Brown Takes Home Honors
    Jennifer Brown set an Indiana school record and provisionally qualified in two events in the first meet of the season last weekend and was named Big Ten Women's Track & field Athlete of the Week for her performance.

    Tia Trent will make her first appearance in the 400 meters this season after winning the event at the Outdoor Big Ten Championship last spring.
