It hasn’t been open more than a year, but the Al Brenda Track already has its first big gig.
Part of the CSU Stanislaus Student Recreation Complex that opened last summer, the facility will host the 2011 NCAA Division II Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Championships on May 26-28.
The three-day event is expected to attract more than 1,000 student-athletes from across the nation, and national television coverage is anticipated.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the University’s great athletic facilities and the region’s treasures,” said University President Ham Shirvani referring to the various business establishments that will house, entertain, and feed the large gathering of people that will come to Turlock.
Adding to an already strong partnership between the University and the surrounding community, the championship event is expected to generate more than $500,000 in revenue for the City of Turlock and surrounding area, according to Turlock Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitors Bureau CEO Sharon Silva.
