Summit League Championship at New USD Complex
Besides USD, teams competing from Thursday through Saturday include South Dakota State, North Dakota State, University of Nebraska-Omaha, IUPUI, Oral Roberts and Western Illinois.
Amelia Miller, junior javelin thrower, said the teams are ready to use the new outdoor area. “All the work that has been put into the complex is not overlooked and all the teams are very appreciative. Now we’re just ready to show it off,” she said.
Field and track events will be split between the three days with an official ribbon cutting on Saturday, May 14, at 1:40 p.m. The presentation of team awards is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
“Having one of the best track facilities in the nation in Vermillion is huge. The Lillibridge complex will allow our program to grow throughout the upcoming years,” said Miller. “We are already fortunate enough to have amazing coaches and now we are able to train with the best equipment possible.”
