Although it is gone for the better, the Husky track leaves with memories. No, I never was on the track team, but I recall being able to get into the Stadium as a freshman and work out on the track. It was the weirdest thing. All you had to do was enter on the east side of the stadium and most days you could head on in. Yes, it was the early 90s and I guess you can say security was lax.
I never went to a Husky game until college. I have always been a Dawg fan and watched games on television as a kid. I recall thinking that the stadium was so cool because it had its own moats.
Not only was I able to run on the track, I also recall the many Dawg Dash’s I’ve participated in with the beginning and end occurring on the track. Many a Husky game I recall the Dawgs rushing out the tunnel and crossing the track to the field. Also, I recall the Husky Helmet rolling back and forth on the track. And while I won’t miss it too much, going into the Stadium today I think it will be weird to look down at the field and feel like something is missing. And oh yeah, GO DAWGS!
