Russell Zeigler '99 – Men's Indoor T&F
Zeigler holds both the F&M and CC record in the 55-meter sprint with a time of 6:41, which he set back in 1998 at the Conference Championship meet. He took gold in the event on three occasions and is one of only three, three-time champions in the 55-meter.

Jon Brallier '07 – Men's Indoor T&F
Brallier is the F&M record holder in the pole vault with a height of 15'0", which he set at the 2007 CC Championship meet. He won gold in the event on three occasions, and is one of only two in CC history to accomplish that feat.
Logan Lewis '18 – Men's Indoor T&F
Lewis is one of only 18 CC student-athletes to win an event three times at the Conference Championship meet, claiming first place in the shot put from 2016-18. His career-best throw of 53'-9.75" in 2016 set an F&M program record.
Sheena Crawley '13 – Women's Indoor T&F
Crawley set school records in four different indoor events (800, 1000, mile, 3000), and at her time of graduation, she owned the CC record in four events (800, 1000, mile, 4x400 relay). She posted a career-best, second-place finish in the mile at the 2013 NCAA Indoor Championships to earn one of two All-America honors in her career. Crawley won a total of five gold medals at CC Indoor Championship meets – including three in the mile – and was named the Outstanding Track Performer in 2012.

Swisher is one of just six student-athletes to ever win an event four times at the CC Championship meet when she accomplished the feat in the pole vault from 2013-16.

Swisher earned All-America status at the 2015 NCAA Indoor Championships with a four-place showing in the pole vault and her career-best height of 12'-6", which occurred in 2016, remains the F&M record.
