The NCAA Division I Men's and Women's Track and Field
Committee has selected Bloomington, Ind., and Eugene, Ore., to host the 2011
NCAA Division I Track and Field East and West preliminary round sites,
respectively. Both sites will host competition May 26-28, 2011.
Indiana University will host preliminary round competition for the second time at the E.C. Billy Hayes Track, as it hosted the Mid-East region in 2005. The University of Oregon has hosted numerous competitions, most recently being the 2009 NCAA West regional and the 2010 NCAA Division I Championships, at Hayward Field.
"Indiana and Oregon have first-class facilities with outstanding staffs that have proven their championship hosting capabilities," said Todd Patulski, chair of the Division I Track and Field Committee and executive associate director of athletics at Baylor University. "We look forward to working with them to ensure a great atmosphere for the student-athletes."
Drake University will host the 2011 and the 2012 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. The 2011 event takes place on June 23-27 at Drake Stadium.
Drake also hosted a highly successful 2008 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships which saw 19 stadium records set, while drawing a record four-day crowd of 41,187 despite flooding in central Iowa.
Texas A&M hosts the 2011 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championship March 11-12 at Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium.
