    Coaches' Outlook
    Indiana head men's track and field coach and program coordinator Marshall Goss:
    "We are looking forward to our kids getting back into competition to see if they can put it on the line without a lot of concentrated practice. We are interested to see what has carried over from the preseason workouts."
    Indiana head women's track and field coach Randy Heisler:
    "With just two practices and coming off spring break we are just trying to see where we are fitness wise. This is a non-scored meet so we will be moving some people around to try to get ready for the Big Ten season and the scored meets we have ahead of us."
