The start of the outdoor campaign is an entirely new season for Iowa State, with many Cyclones returning to the fold based off of eligibility for indoor or outdoor season. Six Iowa Staters are slated to make 2017 debuts this weekend, with 2016 U-20 World Championships qualifier Kelly Naumann, and senior javelin thrower Trey AchterhoffClick here to hear it leading that group.

Among the notable performers from indoor season entered to compete this weekend is Big 12 Indoors women’s weight throw bronze medalist Christabel Okeke, who is entered in the hammer throw and shot put, the men’s hurdles duo of Logan Schneider and Elijah Young, starting their seasons in the 110m hurdles and the 200-meter dash and Trever Ryen, who will be on the track this week before returning to spring football next week.
