Weems-Baskin Track

The outdoor track, named in honor of legendary Gamecock coach Weems Baskin, features a 400-meter, eight-lane track with multi-directional sprint straightaways. The Erotan "S" Synthetic track surface is made by Southwest Recreational Industries, Inc.

Inside the track are two multi-directional long and triple jump runways that include four pits. There also is a multi-directional vault area, and the high jump apron was expanded during the 1997 surfacing project.

The world-class Lynx timing system, used indoors and outdoors, allows for rapid and accurate computerized fully automatic times.

The outdoor track also features world-class throwing facilities. The hammer and discus circles are surrounded by a 20-foot high cage that meets NCAA and international standards. There also are two shot put rings, a javelin runway and an additional ring with a cage.

The outdoor track has seating to accommodate 2,200 spectators. This season, the Gamecocks will host one indoor meet and two outdoor meets. The outdoor track also plays host to a number of youth and high school competitions, including the state high school championships and the Coaches Classic High School meet.

The indoor track features a 250m, three-lane track and separate vault facility. The infield is carpeted with artificial turf. The throws area features separate shot put and weight-throw circles. The landing area is artificial turf, and there is ample space in the facility for practicing either indoor or outdoor events.

The Gamecocks' cross country courses are Owens Field and Hilton Field at Fort Jackson, the site of the 1997 and 2005 SEC Cross Country Championships, the 1999 South Carolina Collegiate Championship and the annual Gamecock Invitational. The all-grass course has rolling hilly terrain and a grandstand that seats 3,000 fans.
