Track and field elite to compete at CSUS

2003 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships Web site

Road closure
during NCAA event
During the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships June 11-14, State University Drive West will be closed to traffic. The road will be blocked off beyond the entrance to the A.G. Spanos Sports Complex on the south end of the campus. It will also be closed south of the staff/faculty entrance to Parking Structure I. The parking structure will remain open to staff/faculty during the championships. However, Lots 8 and 10 will be designated for event patrons only.

The best of the best in college track and field will gather for the 2003 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Track and Field Championships June 11-14 at the A.G. Spanos Sports Complex at CSUS.

This year’s meet will be the largest NCAA Championship in history, featuring 1,100 athletes from around the country participating in the four-day competition. It also marks the first time the event has been held on the West Coast in 35 years.

Many of the college athletes competing will also compete next year in the 2004 U.S. Track and Field Olympic Trials, which will also be held at CSUS. Since the NCAA event began in 1921, the list of champions reads like a who’s who of Olympians and track legends: Jesse Owens, Carl Lewis, Jackie Joyner, Gail Devers and Michael Johnson.

The event begins with preliminary rounds on June 11 and 12 and finals on June 13 and 14. The majority of the finals will be held in the late afternoon and evening. Tickets are on sale in four-day packages: $50 for reserved and finish line seats, $40 for general admission and $25 for general admission for seniors, students and children. Tickets are available at the CSUS Ticket Office (916) 278-4323.
