College track & field fans can explore the full, rich history of the NCAA Division I Outdoor Championships in more depth than ever as the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) unveiled its comprehensive Championships History Record Book homepage. Archives came from the NCAA archives, TFRRS, and the bulk of the research was based on the decades worth of toil by Track & Field News editor E. Garry Hill. His ongoing work can be found here.

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