Lemoore High School

This is the only Purple track I have seen. It has obviously been here for a long time. The extra lane in the west turn indicated a modification from Imperial to Metric. The long chute, now used for the Pole Vault and Long Jump area indicates a once 220 yard straightaway, perhaps used by alumni Tommie Smith before he advanced to the famous 19.5. There are lots of youth hurdle marks along side the track.

The above pictures come from the school's website at: http://www.luhsd.k12.ca.us/district_office/general_information/tiger_stadium_project.htm
