    Some great ideas here but university administration will NEVER let them happen.

    Illini Track & Field

    Hopefully back to the days when I was in school and we hosted the NCAA championships 1977 and 1979.

    Supposedly left Georgia because he was unhappy with their facilities. Fundraising for new facilities paying off? Bodes well for the program that he's won coaching awards for both men and women.

    Could easily be lack of coaching/technique for track. Smallest class of schools for Florida, only 1600 students for the entire county (including elementary). Probably not much of a track team, only one athlete from Moore Haven was in the state meet (girl, 200m at 26.19).
