Creighton Prep Releases Architectural Renderings of New Outdoor Athletic Track and Field Facility

OMAHA, Neb. (March 8, 2024) - Creighton Preparatory School today released architectural renderings of its new outdoor athletic track and field facility. The project will break ground this spring and include an eight-lane, all-weather track and areas for long jump, triple jump, shot put and discus. Renovations will also include a turf infield used for football, soccer and lacrosse practice, bleachers that will seat 1,000 spectators, and a press box and stadium lights for evening events.

“For generations, student-athletes have practiced to win state titles on the same track that has existed almost as long as Creighton Prep has been at this property,” said Fr. Matt Spotts, SJ. “We are excited to introduce the next generation of Creighton Prep athletics to our students and our community.”

The new outdoor athletic track and field facility will replace the aging infrastructure, which includes a cinder track and grass infield that has been used since the early 1960’s.

In October 2023, Creighton Prep received funding from the Shovel-Ready Capital Recovery & Investment Act Grant Program of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development to support athletic improvements to its north campus. The awarded amount matches funds that were pledged through private donations.

In addition to the impact on Prep’s own student-athletes, the upgraded facility will offer a space capable of hosting clubs and teams from the Omaha-metro area and beyond. Creighton Prep plans to host junior high school meets, club track teams and summer campers, which in turn will create opportunities to welcome members of the wider community to Prep’s mission.
