Trine′s Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium is under construction and on target for completion by fall 2010. Earth has been moved and walls are being erected. When completed, the project will offer 3,500 seats and an athletic support building with new locker rooms, coaches′ offices, training room, classroom and weight room. The second floor will include media and press boxes, a hospitality room and Thunder Club deck, along with rooms for overnight visitors which will convert to private suites on game days.
In addition to providing a state–of–the–art facility to accommodate Trine′s rapidly growing football program, which advanced to post–season NCAA tournament play the past two years, the stadium and field with new artificial turf will also support men and women′s soccer, men and women′s lacrosse and women′s field hockey, which will be added in the fall.
The new complex also includes lighting. The lights will expand practice times for student–athletes and allow for the viewing of night games and matches.
