Frank Potts

Originally constructed in 1967, Potts Field was officially dedicated on Sept. 29, 1984 and is named after former CU coach Frank Potts.  Recognized as one of the top facilities in the nation at the time of construction, the facility has twice undergone renovations, most recently in 2003.

Potts sports an Olympic-style 400 meter track oval with state of the art Beynon surface, installed by the Italian company in the spring of 2003.  It is the same surface that was used at the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton, Alberta.

The track features eight 42-inch lanes with the capacity to run sprints and hurdles in both directions, an official steeplechase facility, long jump and pole vault runways that accommodate varying wind conditions, as well as fully electronic timing.  Shot put, discus and hammer throw areas, as well as the javelin approach are also brand new and are located on the newly-sodded grass infield.

Potts Field has been the host of 1986 and 1993 Big Eight Conference Outdoor Championships and the 2008 Big 12 Outdoor Championships.
