The new track at Dakota State University in Madison will be named “The Dan Beacom Track Complex” after alumnus Dan Beacom, who passed away on May 24, 2023. The naming ceremony will take place on August 31, at 6:45 p.m. just before the DSU game against Wisconsin-La Crosse.


DSU Athletic Director, Jeff Dittman says Dan was representative of so many of our student-athletes who enjoy the opportunity to participate in a sport they love while working toward their degrees. Future students can continue that legacy on the track named in his memory.
