Rubber track construction in full swing
All eyes now on target of early January completion date. Season starts Jan.20
The relocation of three new jump runways (long, triple and pole vault) was the focus of the latest phase of construction as crews toiled all week at Alonso. In early November, the Ravens began construction of their new eight-lane rubber track, a process that is now expected to be completed by the first week of January, just in time for the Jan. 20th official start of the track and field season. The Ravens have scheduled the Kincaid Classic, a preseason mini-meet for February 6, and the inaugural Raven Invitational for March 21. Details of those two events are being ironed out and will be announced later. The new competition surface will feature an 8-lane 400-meter state level track, new shot put area, along with the three new jump runways.
