Illinois is the next state on the list. Their high school state championships are held at the track at O’Brien Field, which is located on the campus of Eastern Illinois University. There are three competitive classes for track in Illinois, and all three run their state meet here, May 23rd, 24th, and 25th. Originally built in 1970, the stadium was completely renovated in 1999. New turf and track surfaces were installed in 2004. This looks like a fantastic venue. The track is 9-lanes. Multiple runways for jumps and pole vault are here. Two shot put areas inside are also very nice. What a great place for a high school state meet!
