    FACILITIESCompleted in 2010, Lillibridge Track & Field is one of three recent additions to the University of Sioux Falls Sanford Health Sports Complex. Identifi ed as one of the largest track & fi eld facilities in the region, the state of the art track consists of nine lanes, two high jump areas, two discus cages, two shot rings, two javelin runways, four long jump pits, and four pole vault boxes. In addition to its size, the tracks surface adds to its uniqueness, as Lillibridges surface was designed utilizing the same surface material the United States Olympic Training Center (Chula Vista, Calif.) utilizes. Defi ned by its size and design, Lil-libridge serves as an outstanding facility for USF track & fi eld training and competing, an excellent site for Cougar summer camps, and a very attractive venue for regional/championship style meets. Most recently, Lillibridge hosted the 2011 NCAA Division I Summit League Conference Championship.
