Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina will unveil the school's newest athletic gem with the opening of the new track and field facility on campus.

This weekend's event is the Bill Carson Invitational to honor the long-time former track coach at the school.

While the facility has been used for practice for quite a while, this weekend's meet is the first ever held at the track. UNC-Wilmington, UNC-Charlotte, South Carolina and East Carolina will compete in the event. 

"It's been a long time coming," said ECU track coach Curt Kraft. "Our athletes are really excited about hosting a home meet."

The two-day event begins at noon on Friday.
