Lillibridge Track Complex
The Lillibridge Track Complex and Gottsleben Field opened its gates ahead of the 2016 outdoor track and field season. It is the first outdoor facility available on campus since 1979.
The state-of-the-art track complex is named after alum John Lillibridge '62, an All-American discus thrower, and the field for Dave Gottsleben, who has served as the Coyotes head men's track and field coach since 1984.
The facility features a nine-lane, 400-meter, NCAA-certified BSS 2000 track surface and competition areas for field events all viewable from the 1,000-seat grandstands. An in-ground timing system was also installed to automatically calculate interval and race times. Opposite the grandstand is a 120-meter incline and decline training lane. Only one other complex in the United States has the feature.
