The all-weather track located northeast of Michelson Hall and Chauvenet Hall is the site of Navy's outdoor track and field meets. It's named in honor of Vice Admiral Jonas H. Ingram who commanded the U.S. South Atlantic Fleet during World War II. He was also the Naval Academy Director of Athletics from 1925-1930.
Ingram Field recently underwent a $1.7 million renovation. The eight 42-inch lanes on the running track as well as all jumping areas have been resurfaced with MONDO Super X Performance material. Additional sprinting lanes have been added to the back side of the track, limiting down time during training sessions. In the throwing areas, Ingram field now boasts six shot put circles, a discus-throwing circle and javelin throwers will now have the ability to use the area in the middle of the track for competition. The field is also now equipped with four long/triple jump pits and a “D” zone has been added to the facility allowing two high jump areas to be used concurrently.
