WACO - The Baylor University Board of Regents voted to approve a $13.6 million on-campus track and field stadium, which will replace the current Hart-Patterson Track Complex near Floyd Casey Stadium.

The track stadium will include a nine-lane track, a new team training building with men’s and women’s locker rooms, stadium seating for up to 5,000 spectators, and a 13,500-sf indoor practice facility.

The university has received enough gifts to fully finance Phase 1 of the track stadium project, said Baylor Athletics Director, Ian McCaw.

A future Phase 2 project would expand the office space and student amenities in the team building and create additional space for equipment and training.

The track stadium will be built next to the $250 million football stadium currently under construction. Both facilities will open at the start of their respective sports seasons during the 2014-15 school year.
