    The 2015-16 University of Colorado track and field season started with a few small meets in December, but things will really kick into high gear in January.

    As in the past, CU will host three home meets. The Potts Indoor Invitational (January 15-16) is the only indoor home meet the Buffs will host at Balch Fieldhouse, but they will host a pair of outdoor meets as well at Potts Field, the Jerry Quiller Classic, March 18-19, and the Colorado Invitational, April 8-9.



    A small group of athletes began competing in December before winter break, but the season will start for the entire team at the beginning of January. The Air Force Open is the first meet on the schedule (Jan. 8) before CU hosts the Potts Indoor Invitational Jan. 15-16. The Buffs will stay on the Front Range for most of the indoor season, but there will be a chance to head to Seattle for the Husky Classic (Feb. 12-13). A group of athletes will also compete at the Don Kirby Collegiate Open (Feb. 12-13) in Albuquerque, N.M.

    The University of Washington will host the 2016 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships in Seattle, February 26-27, and the NCAA Indoor Championships will follow March 11-12 in Birmingham, Ala. for those who qualify.

    As soon as the indoor season is over, the Buffs will switch gears to the outdoor campaign, hosting the first of its two home meets at Potts Field. CU will host the Jerry Quiller Classic March 18-19, and the second home meet is the Colorado Invitational, slated for April 8-9.

    As usual, CU will compete at several meets along the Front Range in Fort Collins, Colo. and at the Air Force Academy. The Buffs won’t just compete regionally as many athletes will have the opportunity to compete across the country at Texas Relays, a pair of meets at Stanford and Mt. SAC Relays.

    Washington will host the 2016 Pac-12 Outdoor Track & Field Championships. The combined events portion of the meet will be contested May 7-8, while all other event areas will compete May 14-15. Kansas will host the NCAA West Preliminary Championships, May 26-28. The 2016 NCAA Outdoor Championships are June 8-11 in Eugene, Ore. at Hayward Field, which is also the site of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials, July 1-10.

    Good luck to the track team this year. (I think they originally planned to have the indoor meet at the new practice facility, but I guess the schedule slipped just a bit so Balch gets one more appearance.)

    I wonder how the IPF will effect T&F recruiting?
