Arkansas to Host 2006 NCAA Indoor Track and Fi
BY ANDRES FOCIL
For a seventh consecutive season, the University of Arkansas is scheduled to be the proud host of the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships, March 10-11, 2006.
The University has hosted the NCAA meet ever since the construction of the Randal Tyson Track Center in the winter of 2000 and has seen numerous records fall in its six years of service including the American 200-meter and world 400-meter records this winter. The track and field team has been remarkably successful in their new surroundings as the Razorbacks have won three NCAA titles and two Southeastern Conference crowns.
Arkansas’ hosting of the NCAA indoor meet makes it the third longest host of the championship in the 40-year history of the event. Detroit, Michigan was the first and longest host when they held the meet for 17 years between 1965 and 1981. Beginning in 1989, Indianapolis, Ind., became the host and held the championship for 11 years until Arkansas took over in 2000.
