Eigsti Track and Field Complex


Location: Far east side of GC Athletic Complex at the southern end of 12th Street
Built: 2000
Capacity: 500 in bleachers along finish line
Dimensions: 400 meter track
Hosted: 2004, 2008, and 2010 Mid-Central College Conference Championships; 2015 Crossroads League Champonships

Built in 2000, the 400-meter track is one of the best surfaces in Northern Indiana. The facility hosts the annual Goshen Invitational and has served host to the conference championships four times: in 2004, 2008 and 2010 for the Mid-Central College Conference and in 2015, after a name change, for the Crossroads League. 

The Eigsti Track and Field Complex has ample room for field events to run simultaneously with track events. The high jump and pole vault pits are located inside the south end of the track, while the long and triple jump pits are just outside the same side of the track. The javelin run occupies the infield facing north.

Outside the fenced-in portion of the facility lie the remaining throwing areas. Over four acres of room houses two cages (discuss and hammer throw) and a shot put pit.

Frech Press Box Facility


Location: West side of track at the finish line
Built: 2008

The newest addition to the Eigsti Track and Field Complex, the Frech Press Box Facility was dedicated at the 2008 Goshen Invitational.

Donated by Ancon Construction, the facility was named after Ancon founder Andrew W. Frech. For Ancon, it was the latest in a series of projects focused on giving back to the community. 

In addition to the much-needed press box functions, the facility acts as a storage unit for large field event supplies, a gathering area for coaches, registration for student-athletes, and implement measuring location for event days.
