Benson High School Track – Omaha, NE

Benson High SchoolWe’re back in the midwest for today’s track as this unique mascot series winds down.  This track is found in Omaha bunnyat Benson High School, and is the home of the Mighty Bunnies.  I found three different stories behind the history of this mascot, but there is no way to tell which one is true.  They range from a quote by an opposing coach, to the basketball team hopping like rabbits, to a large bunny population on the site where the school was built.

The track looks nice with the red surface and black “D” zones where the jumps are located.  They have eight full lanes and an artificial turf infield.  The only big negative that I see is that the shot put and discus areas are not close to the track.  They are found in the open field on the upper left corner of the picture, on the other side of the school and across the big parking lot.
