Track and Field returns to Oregon State

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State will hold a pair of track and field meets this spring, the first such events at the school since 1988.

The Beavers will debut their new Whyte Track and Field Center on March 23 with a meet that will include fellow athletes from the University of Portland and Willamette University.

The Beavers will also host the inaugural OSY High Performance meet April 26 for regional college athletes as well as open and club qualifiers.

Oregon State has not hosted a meet since the Oregon Senior The Athletics Congress (TAC) Championships in June 1988. The last collegiate event was the Beaver Twilight that May.

Oregon State has worked to rebuild its track program under coach Kelly Sullivan since 2004. The Beavers' discontinued the sport after the 1988 season.
