2016-7 has been a historic year for Virginia indoor track. Despite not seeing a new track constructed in Virginia since Boo Williams Sportsplex opened on March 14th, 2008, this year VA saw the construction of three new 200m tracks and two of which are hydraulically banking.
Meet the newest of these tracks, Roanoke College's Cregger Center Field House. This track has already seen one meet on it and will host the VHSL 1A/2A and 3A/4A State Championships this February. Listen above to head coach, Kirk Nauman describe the facility, the Roanoke College program, and of course his favorite features of the brand new track.
