CYCLONES SOAR at BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIPS
You have to go back more than 25 years to find a conference championship in which both the Iowa State men's and women's teams collectively put forth such a stellar effort. The Iowa State men finished third in the team standings with 115 points, their second highest ever team finish in the Big 12 era and their top team point-scoring effort.
The Iowa State women were fourth with 97 points, just 1.5 points out of third. For the Cyclone women..., it marked their second-best ever Big 12 team score and Big 12 team finish. How did they do it?

BIG FRIDAY for CYCLONES at BIG 12 MEET
The Iowa State women sit first and the men second after day one of the Big 12 Indoor Track and Field Championships Friday at the Lied Center. The ISU men went 1-2-4 in the 5,000 with Andrew Jordan becoming the first Iowa Stater to win the men's 5,000-meters at the conference meet since 1993. The Cyclone women got a Herculean anchor from All-American Jasmine Staebler, who roared past two-time Big 12 mile champion Molly Sughroue of Oklahoma State to give the Iowa Staters their first women's DMR victory at the league meet since 2014 and the fourth in school history. There was a lot more to this great day.

MEET DAY! The Big 12 Indoor Track and Field Championships begin today in Ames. Multi-events start at 3 PM, field events and track prelims start at 3 PM.
WEIGHT vs. HAMMER
The weight and hammer throwers may do more work for less attention than any other event performers in track and field. Part of it is that their events require secure areas of competition which means they often are held separately from when their teammates are showcasing their skills.
But the weight and hammer throw are special events with considerable technique demands. Iowa State's Vlad Pavlenko had the second best throw in school history earlier this seas...on. He and his teammates will compete Friday in the Big 12 Track and Field Championships at the Lied Center in Ames. The women's 20-pound weight throw is at 3 p.m. The men's 35-pound weight throw will start at 6 p.m.
But even as the indoor season comes to a climax, these Cyclones have not neglected their hammer training, even in February.
