Iowa State will host the men's and women's Big 12 Conference Track and Field Championships May 15-17 at the Cyclone Sports Complex. ISU last hosted an outdoor track and field championship in 1995 (Big Eight Conference).

Single-session tickets are $10 ($5 for youth) at the gate.

The Cyclone men look to improve on last year's ninth-place finish behind four-time 800-meter league champ Edward Kemboi (above). The ISU women, who placed sixth last year, return two-time Big 12 shot put titlist Christina Hillman (right).

Real-time results and live video (Friday and Saturday only) will be available on the Big 12 website.  Photo courtesy of athletics communications.
