The men have won a total of 10 NCAA individual outdoor championships while the women are still searching for their first outdoor individual title. The last time the women won an individual title indoors was in 2018 when Kaitlyn Long won the women’s weight throw event. Minnesota’s highest team finish on the men’s side is first back in 1948 and the women have finished 18th three times with the last being in 2009. The men’s highest team finish in the last 50 years is ninth, which they have done twice, with the last being in 2003.
