MANCHESTER, N.H. – Saint Anselm College announced the addition of men's and women's track & field as varsity sport offerings on Tuesday. Additionally, plans for an on-campus track & field complex were revealed, which will include an eight-lane track, synthetic turf field, lighting, spectator seating, and an amenities building with locker rooms.
The brand-new Hawks track & field programs will participate in both the indoor and outdoor seasons, officially beginning competition within the Northeast-10 Conference effective in the 2023-24 academic year.
Design and planning for the facility, which may be completed in phases, is already underway. The complex is also expected to be home to the Hawks men's and women's soccer teams, as well as a wide array of other College programming.
"Track & field will enhance the overall student-athlete experience and provide new opportunities for recruits to compete at the NCAA Division II level while immersed in a transformative educational experience," said Saint Anselm President Joseph A. Favazza, Ph.D. "The addition of track & field at Saint Anselm is a key strategic initiative that will also drive ongoing athletics recruitment."
