NCAA Release

INDIANAPOLIS - The NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Track and Field Committee has selected College Station, Texas, and Nampa, Idaho, to serve as hosts for the 2011 and 2012 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Indoor Track and Field Championships, respectively. The 2011 Indoor Track and Field Championships, hosted by Texas A&M University, will be held at the Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium at McFerrin Athletic Center. This will mark the second time Texas A&M will host the event, with its first occurring in 2009. Boise State University, who will host for the first time in championship history, will hold the 2012 competition at the Jackson Track at the Idaho Center.

“The committee was fortunate to receive several attractive bids for the Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships,” said Holly Sheilley, chair of the Division I Men’s and Women’s Track and Field Committee and assistant athletic director for student development and championships at the University of Louisville.

"We are dedicated to enhancing the student-athlete experience and bringing the event to areas that elevate the championship. We are confident that Texas A&M will build upon the great job they did hosting in 2009 and make it an even better championship in 2011,” said Sheilley. “We are also excited to take the championship somewhere new, with Boise State as a host in 2012. Both have good reputations as premier track venues and the ability to draw good crowds, which makes them not only ideal selections to host the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships, but will help to continue to foster the sport's growth.”

The 2010 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships will be held in Fayetteville, Ark., at the Randal Tyson Track Center on the campus of the University of Arkansas, March 12-13.
