Escondido High School Track – Escondido, CA

Escondido High SchoolI’m going to move inland for today’s track as I continue this southern California coast series.  Escondido is east of Carlsbad and Oceanside, and I’m posting the track at Escondido High School because my grandfather actually lived here in the city for a while.  And the streak of really nice high school tracks continues with this one.  This is another red, 9-lane track.  Field events are found on both the inside of the track and on the outside.  One cool feature that sticks out

And the streak of really nice high school tracks continues with this one.  This is another red, 9-lane track.  Field events are found on both the inside of the track and on the outside.  One cool feature that sticks out are the two permanent shot put sectors in the north D-zone.  They are marked out with the red artificial turf and white lines, matching the football end-zones.  I honestly don’t remember ever seeing this before at any facility, high school or college, but I love the idea.  Inside the back straightaway, you have the runway for the horizontal jumps, with a sandpit on each end.  Two pole vault pits and runways are located in the south D-zone.  Outside the stadium to the north, there is the separate high jump area.  There are also two

Outside the stadium to the north, there is the separate high jump area.  There are also two shot put circles in opposite corners.  I’m not sure how those get used, but it does make for more practice spots.  Across the parking lot to the north, you see the discus cage and sector.  There is actually a second one above it, but didn’t fit in the satellite photo.  Overall, this is a very nice facility that the Cougars have here.
