    NCAA Outdoor Track Championships
    Indiana University hosted the 1997 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships from June 4th throught the 7th. The event was an overwhelming success despite occasional rain. The Championships took place in the newly comlpeted Robert C. Haugh Track and Field complex at the Billy Hayes Track.

    This state-of-the-art facility provided comfortable seating for over 3,000 spectators a day, and offered athletes the finest competition arenas in the world including multiple areas for Shot Put, Long Jump, High Jump, and Pole Vault. The track also features the Super Mondo X surface which allows for great traction and quick drying. The complex also sports a new scoreboard run by Daktronics and FinishLynx timing systems that allow reults to be posted within seconds of a finished race. All of these factors led many of the nation's top track coaches, including USC's Ron Allice, to declare that this was the most well run meet they had ever attended.

    Six Indiana Athletes competed at the championships, three in their respective final. Among them, Nathalie Belfort finished 8th in the women's high jump, Tom Chorny finished 9th in the men's 3000 meter steeplechase, and Hilary Bruening finished 10th in the 800 meter run. For her performance, Bruening was named All-American for the first time.

    In team competition, Arkansas won the event in the men's bracket, while LSU took the honors for the women.
