Lancers Excited to Host First Track Meet Saturday
Friday, April 28, 2017
On Saturday, April 29 at 12 p.m, for the first time in over 60 years, Grace College’s track and field team will host a meet. The Lancers are set to officially open the new Bernard & Linnie Key Track and Field Complex with the Lancer Invitational. The community is welcome to attend the historic event.
The five-team meet features several Crossroads League opponents. Joining Grace at the historic meet will be Huntington, Goshen, St. Francis and Trinity Christian.
The Bernard & Linnie Key Track and Field Complex is a state-of-the-art design that features a nine-lane, 400-meter competition track with the ability to run sprints in either direction, depending on the wind. The complex includes discus and hammer throw cages, high jump zone and pole vaulting facilities, long jump pits, javelin throw and shot put event areas, and grandstand seating for 400.
“We are thrilled to begin hosting track and field meets at Grace for the first time in our 68-year history,” said Chad Briscoe, athletic director at Grace College. “The complex will not only benefit track and field athletes, but indeed all Grace athletes will make use of the new facility. We are extremely grateful to the Key family for making this expansion of our athletic programs possible.”
