GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College officials will break ground on a new track and field complex at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the southwest end of campus.
The track and field facility will be near the baseball and softball fields and will complete the Tomcat Park complex. Leveling and site preparation will take place over the summer with work on the project continuing through next summer.
President Troy D. VanAken, Ph.D., will be joined by members of the 35th Annual Athletics Hall of Fame induction class at the announcement. The groundbreaking is being held as part of the College’s inaugural athletics reunion weekend.
“The completion of this project will bring all our current teams back on campus and provide valuable competition and training space. But the track and field complex is about much more than just athletics; it will also serve as a connection to the community and strengthen Thiel College’s ability to serve as a regional resource for recreation,” President VanAken said.
The track and field complex concludes a series of initiatives that began with the construction of Alumni Stadium and expanded with the beginning of Tomcat Park, which houses the college’s baseball and softball facilities.
