Harry Brittingham Track

The original surface was installed back in 1996 as one of the first, blue, state-of-the-art all-weather tracks to be installed in southern California courtesy of generous families and donors. Fast forward to 2014, the Eagles partnered with Beynon sports to redesign and construct a track and field facility capable of providing a competitive advantage all while delivering a safe venue for daily training.
