PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

 The Pittsburg State University men's and women's outdoor track & field teams will travel to Maryville, Mo., to compete in the 2016 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Outdoor Championships beginning Friday (May 6). The three-day event will conclude Sunday (May 8) at Herschel Neil Track.

The meet gets under way at 1 p.m. (CDT) Friday with the start of the combined events – the women's heptathlon and the men's decathlon. Day two action in the combined events begins at 9:30 a.m. Field events start at 1 p.m. Saturday with track events starting at 4:30 p.m. Championship Sunday action begins at 11 a.m.

Both Gorilla squads will seek to defend their 2015 MIAA Outdoor Championships. The Pitt State men captured their fourth straight MIAA outdoor championship in 2015 and their 11th MIAA outdoor title since joining the league in 1990. The Gorilla women earned their first MIAA outdoor title since 2004 and the program's eighth all-time MIAA outdoor crown a year ago.

The Pitt State women overcame a 7.5-point deficit from Saturday last year to pull away for a 12.5-point win over second-place Central Missouri, the 2015 NCAA Division II Indoor National Champion. The Gorillas finished with 176.5 points, while the Jennies finished with 164 and third-place Lincoln compiled 133 points.

The Pitt State men also battled back from a seven-point deficit Saturday to claim a 12-point win over second place Missouri Southern in 2015. The Gorillas defeated the Lions 139 to 127. UCM finished third with 111 points.
