For the past 17 years the Marshall Bell Track at the Southern Miss Track and Field and Soccer Complex has been the home of the Golden Eagle track and field program.

The first year proved to be a learning experience for all, and, after hosting only two regular-season meets, Southern Miss held the Conference USA Outdoor Championships in May 1997. Overall, Southern Miss has hosted a total of 48 events in the past 12 years, including the High School South-State Championships.

The track received a major upgrade in 2013 when the track was replaced with a new Benyon surface while upgrading the long jump runways and pits and high jump areas.

The complex, which consists of a track, soccer field, press box, and storage facilities, has bleacher seating for approximately 850 and is regarded as one of the top facilities in the state. The complex is also equipped with a state-of-the-art Daktronics scoreboard. The track is rightfully named after former Head Coach Marshall Bell, who was with the program for 18 years and whose teams won the Metro Conference Championship twice in the men's division and once in the women's division.

Groundbreaking on the facility began took place in the spring of 1995 and the track neared completion in the fall of 1996. Improvements on the track and soccer field are continuously being made in order to help it become one of the top facilities in the conference.
