When the Austin College men’s and women’s soccer teams take the field this fall, they’ll do so on an improved North Field, if alumni donations allow scheduled renovations. Already, a new scoreboard, windscreen, and spectator bleachers have been added to the field. Next in the plans are a covered team bench and scorer’s table, cement pads and walkways for the bleachers, a new entry way for fan access to the field, plus some aesthetic and landscaping improvements. The fundraising goal is $50,000.
“These improvements are needed to allow our soccer programs to continue to provide a positive student-athlete experience,” said athletics director David Norman ’83 (MA ’84). “I hope our alumni and friends will rally behind this effort to make our soccer facility something we can all be proud of. This is a great way for people to support the soccer program specifically and positively impact the athletic and fan experience. It will also send a strong message to our recruits that our programs will continue to improve and be successful.”
