KARL STRAUS TRACK
Chancellor Sam Schuman named the UNC Asheville Track in honor of Karl Straus in the fall of 1992. Karl Straus is a prominent attorney in the Asheville area, who has been a generous benefactor to the University and the Athletics Department. Straus was one of the track's most frequent users and has run many laps around his namesake.
Due to new Big South Conference and NCAA regulations, the track program has not been able to host a home meet in more than seven years.
