After winning the opening tip, Iowa State got right to work feeding one of its big men, with Solomon Young scoring the first points of the game by backing down his defender with ease and letting the ball angle off the backboard into the basket for his first points of the game.

The Iowa State track and field program began the 29th annual Iowa State Classic in strong fashion on Friday, with many Cyclone athletes running personal bests. The meet has become a mainstay on the indoor calendar, with some of the nation's most talented athletes competing at the Lied Recreation Athletic Center over the weekend.

This year's Lady Puerto Rico Classic provided Iowa State with a great opportunity to find its current identity as a team. Each school in the field came in ranked in the top 100 of GolfWeek's rankings, so it was expected to be a competitive field.

Day two began at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic began with Iowa State in a deep hole that it had already put itself in. The Cyclones finished opening round play Sunday tied for 10th place, 19 strokes off of the lead. When play began at 8:00 a.m. Monday there was reportedly 16 mph winds, which ultimately led to another day of high scores for all of the teams involved.

First round play for the Lady Puerto Rico Classic began at 8 a.m, Sunday morning. Taglao Jeeravivitaporn was the first Cyclone to tee off, as she started on the par five, fourth hole of the River Course at the Rio Mar Country Club. As all six Cyclones would proceed to tee off and it seemed like they were never able to completely wake up. 

The Iowa State Track and Field squad closed out another action-packed weekend in bold fashion, with Saturday being highlighted by one very special run. The Cyclones had 10 athletes competing in seven events across the board and in two different meets.

The Lady Puerto Rico Classic will be Iowa State's second competition of the spring season. The women's golf team has played in this same tournament for the past 12 years dating back to the 2007-08 season.

After coming off a trio of meets across the country last weekend in which multiple personal and school records were set, the Iowa State Track and Field Program will be back in action again. The Cyclones are set to compete at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational at the University of Nebraska, while All-American distance runner Edwin Kurgat will run at the prestigious Millrose Games in New York.

Iowa State walked out of the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California, with a load of confidence after picking up six bonus point victories in a commanding 34-9 win over the Fresno State Bulldogs.

As if there wasn't enough pressure to perform after Friday night's energetic yet lackluster 5-0 loss for Iowa State, Saturday's action featured a maximum capacity crowd that included a lot of furry friends to cheer on the Cyclones.
