The Iowa track and field team will travel to Drake today and Saturday to compete in the Jim Duncan Invitational.

Competing alongside the Hawkeyes will be in-state Division I competitors Iowa State and Northern Iowa, among others.

The U.S. Track and Field and Cross-Country Coaches Association recently ranked the Iowa men’s team No. 25 in the nation. Numerous members of the team are also ranked, including Aaron Mallett, who is tied for second in the 110-meter hurdles and 20th in the 400-meter hurdles, Kevin Lewis at No. 19 in the 10,000 meters, and No. 20 James Harrington in the 200 meter.

The 400-meter relay of Vinny Saucer, Brendan Thompson, Harrington, and Mallett is also ranked No. 14.

However, it is not only the men’s side that is doing big things for the Hawkeyes.

Three on the women’s side are also individually ranked.
