Oakland University Track – Rochester, MI

oakland_University_image2As it turns out, there is one more track found in the Horizon League, and this one is the newest of them all.  In researching the previous track, I noticed the Oakland University was hosting the outdoor conference meet.  However, no track was to be found in any satellite images.  Nothing could be found on the Golden Grizzlies’ athletics website, but there is an architectural drawing on the university’s recreation page.  Fortunately, Beynon Sports installed the new track surface and posted an update on their website last month.  It’s an 8-lane track that looks great.  Soccer will play its games here too, on the artificial turf infield.
