State meet stays put
The WIAA agreed to a five-year contract with the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse to host the State Track and Field Championships in the city through 2026.
The agreement with UW-La Crosse provides the WIAA usage of the entire Roger Harring Stadium at Veterans Memorial Field Sports Complex as well as Mitchell Hall; and, starting in 2023, the Fieldhouse during the State Meet.
Roger Harring Stadium at Veterans Memorial Field Sports Complex was opened in 2008 and seats 9,556 with additional seating and standing room for the State Track & Field Championships.
The projected annual economic impact of the State Meet in the La Crosse area is approximately $4 million.
