    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 women's track and field coach Randy Heisler:
    "Last year we lost by five against Notre Dame, but we did not have enough athletes to put two people in each event. This weekend we will be able to compete in every event. Notre Dame is strong in a few different events and those are the areas that we too are strong in and are looking to improve. It will be important that we have good performances in those events in order to win the meet."
    Indiana head men's track and field coach Marshall Goss:
    "The meet could be very close, but we will have to perform at our top level this weekend. We will try to get to the level that we would like to be at at this point in the season."

    Last Weekend
    Both the Indiana men and women took home first place honors at the Ohio State quadrangular meet last weekend. The Hoosiers defeated Ohio State, Western Carolina and Washington.
