Head men's track and field coach Larry Wieczorek announced his 2011-12 team captains on Thursday, according to a release.

The Hawkeyes will be led by All-American seniors Erik Sowinski and Troy Doris.

Sowinski won two All-American honors at the 2011 NCAA Championships, running the third leg for the 1,600-meter relay team that finished fourth (3:07.16) and finishing fourth individually in the 800 meters (1:49.47).

Doris finished fifth in the triple jump at the NCAA Championships, and broke a 22-year-old school record in the event during the Big Ten Championships. He was a six-event All-American at the College of DuPage before transferring to Iowa before the 2011 season.

"We have a number of individuals that are capable of being tremendous team captains, but Erik and Troy separate themselves because of their distinct success on the track," Wieczorek said in a statement. "They're both All-Americans, Big Ten champions, and outstanding student-athletes. I'd say they're very deserving of this honor."
