This past fall, Coastal Carolina University’s track and field program got a major facelift. In addition to refurbishing the 20-year-old track with much-needed repairs, the $500,000 project including resurfacing it in the school colors.
“Having a teal track and field facility means tradition and setting a legacy moving forward with Teal Nation,” said CCU director of track and field Sandy Fowler. “The facility will also bring a sense of pride to our team.”
The rubber ProTraxx surface provided by athletic flooring and surfacing company Connor Sports is considered the best in the field. According to the company, ours is the only track in existence with this particular shade of teal.
In addition to student-athletes, the track is frequently used by students, faculty and staff, as well as residents of the surrounding community.
