One of the greatest things about my alma mater is its rich history in track & field. But for some time, the program was dissolved and it was only a memory. The practice field was just an open public area next to the football stadium. The only true reminder of its greatness is the statue of John Carlos and Tommie Smith.
But today the school announced that in a couple years, the track & field program would return. This makes me so happy. For what Speed City meant to San Jose and the campus, it is great to bring back one of the school’s biggest and most important sports programs.
This was amazing. I am so happy!
