Track & Field

    Katherine B. Loker Stadium

    Katherine B. Loker Stadium was made possible by a generous donation from Katherine B. Loker.

    The 3,000-seat stadium opened in the 2001 season and was dedicated on May 5 during the USC-UCLA dual meet. The facility includes track offices, locker rooms, an athlete lounge and meeting rooms. The track and field portion of the venue is still named after legendary USC coach Dean Cromwell, winner of 12 NCAA titles.

    Cromwell Track & Field was used as a training and warm-up facility during the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. It underwent a complete refurbishing in fall of 1983. Not only was the track resurfaced, but the high jump area was expanded, two new sand pits for the horizontal jumps were installed and a new drainage system was also added.

    The track's Rekortan surface, the same one that was installed for the Olympic competition at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, has eight, 42-inch lanes.

    Cromwell Track & Field Stadium was the site of the first USC-UCLA Dual Meet held on the USC campus in 1995.

    Katherine B. Loker stadium will host the 2003 Pac-10 Championships, the first conference meet hosted by USC since 1986.
