Track and Field: New CIS-level program to be based at UNB Saint John
I did not see this coming. The University of New Brunswick has just announced that the Saint John campus will have its first-ever CIS level sport, Track & Field, starting next year. This follows on the announcement earlier this summer of the refurbishment of the Canada Games Stadium on the UNBSJ campus - thanks to your and my infrastructure tax dollars. The surprising part is that UNB Fredericton student athletes will also be eligible to compete on the UNBSJ team (which I guess will be the "UNB" team), just as apparently UNBSJ students are eligible to compete on any of the current Fredericton based teams. Off the top of my head I can't name one UNBSJ-based student-athlete currently competing out of Fredericton, and it will be interesting to see if student-athletes are willing to make the 70 minute commute to run around a track.
