NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships History

header

 

For fifty years, the NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships have been a centerpiece of the collegiate winter schedule. From 1965 when Missouri won the inaugural title in a 14-12 barnburner over Oklahoma State all the way through this upcoming March 10-11 in College Station, Texas, this meet has served as collegiate proving grounds for half a century.

College track & field fans can now explore that full, rich history of the meet in more depth than ever as the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) unveiled Thursday its comprehensive NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships History Record Book homepage. Information has been compiled from the NCAA News Archive, USCTrackAndField.com, Flash Results and TFRRS.

For more results, check out the USTFCCCA Infozone meet history page for the NCAA Division I Indoor Championships.

Though this database is the most expansive ever, it is still a work in progress. If you notice aspects of the record book that need to be updated, please contact Tom Lewis in the USTFCCCA National Office.

(Note: In order to better compare athletes across generations, the current 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 scoring system has been retroactively applied to all results.)
