On May 9, bulldozers and backhoes began excavating Woody Greeno Track. If the weather cooperates, a much-needed new Nebraska Wesleyan track and field facility will be ready for the fall semester.
|The way that people have stepped up and helped fund the new track says a lot about what Nebraska Wesleyan means to so many.|
Many generous NWU track and field alumni, parents and friends are making this vital renovation project possible. The way that people have stepped up and helped fund the new track says a lot about what Nebraska Wesleyan means to so many. That support also means a great deal to me personally and to the NWU track and field athletes for the next 20 years.
The new track will be among the very best in the country. Our track and field student-athletes will train and compete on the same surface used in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The new surface will serve our current student-athletes and help us attract prospective students.
I have tried to thank as many of the donors to this project along the way as I could. I want to use this opportunity to publicly express my sincere thanks to every person who in any way contributed to this desperately needed new facility.
NWU Track and Field has a rich and proud tradition. I am looking forward to using our new facility to continue that tradition and take it to even greater heights.
