Our next Big West track is the Matador Track & Field Complex at Cal State-Northridge. This is a 9-lane track with a surface that was installed in 2003. It is a track & field-only facility, so the throws can be contested on the inside of the track. It looks like the pole vault is the only event on the outside. The track is located down in a bowl, so there is grass seating on the hill surrounding it. The Matadors last hosted the conference meet here in 2010. This season they hosted six meets, but at a time when those of us in a northern climate would be very jealous – during the traditional indoor season. The first meet was in January, and the last one was in mid-March.
