Lincolnton, NC, October 8th 2009: The NCAA announced today that UCS will continue as the Official Equipment Supplier to the NCAA Track & Field Indoor and Outdoor Championships for Divisions I, II & III, through 2013. UCS President Jeff Schwartz noted that the original relationship began in 1999 and has been extended through a pair of successive renewals prior to this most recent one. “Over the course of this successful partnership,” said Schwartz, “we have witnessed a remarkable growth in intercollegiate athletics as well as continuous improvements in the design, performance, safety and environmental friendliness of the Track & Field equipment we proudly manufacture on site at our own factories in the United States.”
In addition to UCS’s experience in supplying the Track & Field equipment for the past 60 NCAA Championships, no company other than UCS has been the Official Supplier to four Olympic Games (‘84, ‘88, ‘92 & 2000). UCS equipment has been installed at three of the four IAAF Certified Class 1 tracks in the United States. “UCS is honored to have been chosen again as the Official Equipment supplier to the NCAA Track & Field Championships.” Said Schwartz, “we would like to thank the NCAA Track & Field Committee for allowing UCS to continue its support of Collegiate Track & Field.”
