Ed Widseth Field – Crookston, MN

University of Minnesota  CrookstonI’m moving north today for the next college track in Minnesota.  Crookston is close to the North Dakota border, and today’s track is located on the University of Minnesota-Crookston campus.  Ed Widseth Field was recently renovated in 2007.  They have new 2,000 seat bleachers, and lights, to go along with the new track surface.  They are currently fundraising for artificial turf too.  This is an 8-lane track, with only the high jump on the inside.  All other field events are on the outside.  There are also second pits on the south end of the runways for the jumps, but the got cropped out of the Google photo.  Now here is the interesting thing, and I didn’t realize it until just now.  The Golden Eagles do not have track and field teams.  The track is used by Crookston High School though.
