We've Hit the Big Time!

Curious?  Since we’ve hit many big times over our 108 years (yes, 108.  Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday?!), but we have not had a soccer field until a modest six years ago.  So now what?  Our soccer field with track and field accommodations now has a PRESS BOX!  A real honest-to-goodness press box.  One can just see the fans pressing into it in cold rainy weather.  Just kidding.  Our games are, of course, covered by the press.  One of our own grads, Carrie Cochran of the Enquirer, has come several times to photograph games.  (She's an award winning photojournalist, by the way.)

  Our games are also on radio and television, and thus the press box.  The field is in use frequently even in April.  Our own lacrosse team is “in season” now as well as clubs playing soccer on most weekends.  Soon the track and field folks will be “in season” as one got a preview of shot putting just yesterday (before the snow came again).  So here are a few shots of our newest structure on campus.  It’s above the south side of the field, as one would guess, in line with the top row of bleachers.  Stay posted.  Who knows what may spring up next?
