The next track in Minnesota’s South Suburban Conference is found at Burnsville High School at Pates Stadium. This is a pretty typical high school track for this area. It has a black, all-weather surface with eight lanes. The high jump is on the inside of the north curve, but all other field event are on the outside. The long jump, triple jump, and pole vault are all on the outside of the north curve, so all jumping events are very close to each other, which is nice. The discus and shot put can be found in the field to the east of the track. The facility was upgraded a few years ago, including a new artificial turf field. You can find the Blaze track & field teams competing here in the spring.
