    Bloomington, Ind.- The Indiana track and field teams begin the season on Saturday, Jan. 6, in Gladstein Fieldhouse. Action begins at noon.

    Indiana Opens Season At Home
    Indiana begins its 2007 track and field season in Bloomington in the Indiana Open. The Hoosiers will host six indoor meets this season.

    Wilson Named Interim Head Coach
    Head cross country coach Judy Wilson was promoted to interim head women's track and field coach in December. She takes over for former director of track and field Randy Heisler, who resigned to take a position at Ball State. Wilson will continue to coach the women's distance runners.

    Wilson is in her ninth season with the Hoosier coaching staff. Last year she guided Kelly Siefker to a ninth-place finish in the steeplechase at the 2006 NCAA Outdoor Championships.

    Key Returning Athletes
    The Hoosiers will look to several key returning athletes to lead Indiana into the 2007 season. The sprints and hurdles will be a strong area for Indiana, as seniors Stacey Clausing, Courtney Johnson and Lorian Price all return. The three have combined for three Big Ten titles and each has qualified for regional and national competition. Price also had a strong year in the jumps during the 2006 indoor season.

    Senior Candace Perry recorded a team-best jump of 6.09m in the long jump during the 2006 outdoor season, and will be looking to have a strong year. Sophomore Tiffany Howard is Indiana's lone returnee in the throws. She tossed a throw of 13.58m in the shut put during the outdoor season.

    In the distance events, Lindsay Hattendorf, Wendi Robinson and Kristin Whitezell will be looked upon to lead a talented group of freshmen.

    Big Ten Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Women's Championships
    During the 2006-07 season, the Big Ten will celebrate the conference's 25th Anniversary of Women's Championships.

    From Aug. 15, 2006, to July 2007, the conference will be sharing some of the many stories of student-athletes, teams, coaches and administrators who have made the past 25 years a success and have set the stage for "the story to continue."

    Information about the campaign can be found on the official conference Web site - www.bigten.org.
