IATC Announces Indoor Championships


The IATC announced their first High School Indoor Track & Field Championships which will take place on Saturday March 24th, 2018 at the University of Dubuque. The meet will be sanctioned by the IAHSAA and IGHSAU, meaning that teams who compete in an outdoor T&F meet prior to the Championships will be able to use the meet to help reach their required number of meets during the outdoor season, though the meet will not score teams. 

While submitting entries, all athletes who do not bring in an indoor time or mark will have to use their PR from last year's outdoor season, multiplying times by 1.06 and dividing distances by 1.06, trying to make a fair entry for athletes who peaked at the end of the outdoor season. 

The meet coordinator is Eric Cogdill, the head girls Cross Country coach at Ankeny Centennial and assistant track coach. Cogdill also heads up the Iowa Middle School State Cross Country meet, which is hosted at Ankeny Centennial in the fall.
