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.

The Iowa State women’s basketball team (15-8, 7-5 Big 12) defeated the Texas Longhorns (15-8, 7-4 Big 12) by a score of 69 to 51 on Wednesday night. The win avenged a loss to the Longhorns earlier in the season at home.

In a win that helps Iowa State in many ways, there were some things to look out deeper.

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.

There are a lot of requirements for college athletes to get an athletic scholarship: they need to have good grades, receive good test scores, as well as have a great athletic ability in their chosen sport. For freshman Nolwenn Nunes, an international swimmer for Iowa State, that wasn't all. She also had to learn a second language and test out of it in order to come to Iowa State.

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.

The mix of blue and red in the stands indicated it was time for the annual Big 12 rival dual meet of the season between Iowa State and Kansas. Kansas ended the night on top with the score being 63-105 in the Jayhawks' favor.

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.

The second day of a trio of track meets closed in strong fashion for the Iowa State Track and Field squad. The Cyclones had athletes competing in Lubbock, Texas, Seattle and Bloomington, Indiana, facing off against some of the nation's best talent in events across the board. Here's a rundown of what happened on Saturday.

Iowa State's men's golf kicked off its spring season last week and now it is the women's turn. Head coach Christie Martens will bring her squad to Orlando, Florida, to compete in the UCF Challenge hosted by the University of Central Florida.

As the calendar moves on to February, so will Iowa State Track and Field's 2020 schedule. After coming off a home meet which saw national marks set and personal bests broken, the Cyclones will branch off for this weekend's meets.

The Iowa State Cyclones (12-6, 4-3 Big 12) will travel to Waco, Texas to battle the Baylor Bears (17-1, 6-0 Big 12) on Tuesday night. The WBCA Coaches Poll ranks the Bears as the No. 1 team in the country.

But the Cyclones hope starting point guard Jade Thurmon could provide a sparkplug with her speed. 

The Iowa State men's golf team is currently competing in its first meet of the spring season. The Cyclones have had nearly a three-month layoff since they last competed in the Big 12 Match Play event in October. They now traveled to Tucson, Arizona to play in the Arizona Intercollegiate tournament, hosted by the University of Arizona at its home course is Sewailo Golf Club.

Records and personal bests were the major highlights in Iowa State's first home track and field meet of the season, the Cyclone Open. The Cyclones competed against athletes from Northern Iowa and Drake, along with others competing as part of separate running and athletic clubs. Iowa State proved to be victorious in 11 events across the board.
