Sacramento State President Alexander Gonzalez and Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson at the press conference.
Exciting news for Sacramento State and the region was announced at an Oct. 29 press conference in The WELL’s Terrace Suite: Sac State will be the site of USA Track & Field’s 2014 National Outdoor Championships. The meet, attracting the nation’s top male and female track athletes, will take place June 26-29 at Hornet Stadium, which was the site of the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Trials. The project is slated to include a major upgrade to the stadium track. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, who appeared at the press conference along with Sacramento State President Alexander Gonzalez and Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau President Steve Hammond, summed it up perfectly: “Track is back!”
