It seems that my search for unusual high school mascots keep bringing me back to Texas. Today’s track is in New Braunfels, and it is the home of the Unicorns track & field teams. The New Braunfels High School mascot story goes back to the original German settlers here when the city was first founded in 1845.
This is another great-looking high school facility. It has a nice red surface with an artificial turf infield. There are three sand pits for the jumps on both sides of the track, with a runway in between each one. I’m not sure I’ve seen this before, but is make a lot of sense to set it up this way. This also is another 7-lane track, which is pretty rare to see.
