The Nebraska Indoor Track & Field Championship Series includes 11 events per gender, over the course of three indoor track & field competitions. The top eight in each event will be awarded points for each competition. The athlete with the most points at the conclusion of the third indoor competition will be the series champion. Updated series point standings will be posted online following the conclusion of each meet.
Medals will be awarded to the top three athletes with the highest series point totals per event and gender at the conclusion of the third competition on February 17. Athletes must be present and compete at the third meet to be eligible to receive an award.
